Location: Long Point, Coorong NP.

Terek Sandpiper (Xenus cinereus) (1) 

Curlew Sandpiper (Calidris ferruginea) (2) One of the birds in full breeding 

Other birds in the area included Shelducks, Pied Oystercatchers, Caspian Terns 
and Fairy Tern. A very nice area to visit.

Previously I had seen a pair of Horesfields Bronze Cuckoo and a Pallid Cuckoo.  
There were hundreds in total of Red-neck Stints, on the Coorong and Lake 
Albert. One group was 100+. They flew often. I saw no Neophemas during my 
searching, just a few back on the highway and too dark for viewing.
