Several people have looked for it on Thursday and Friday. Wayne
Merritt, Dimitris Bertzeletos, Mike Lawrie, George Swann and today
Damian Baxter. There are very strong winds prevailing, but this may
not be why it was not found.

Painted Button-quail seen by Wayne & Dimitris
Little Button-quail flew across the river
Stubble Quail seen by me this morning along the track
Spotted Harrier - a group of three
Black-shouldered Kite - a pair
Nankeen Kestrel - a group of five
Peregrine Falcon - sensational views of it lining up birds on the
river from a long way off and charging in upsetting everything (hope
it didn't get the phalarope!!!!)
White-fronted Chats including up to 30 seen by Wayne and Dimitris
A variety of waders (Greenshank, GT Tattler, Red-necked Stint, a
Sanderling, Grey Plover, BF Dotterel, Red-capped Plover, Red-kneed
