I was at Mason Park on Saturday, introducing some new birders to birding, and
it's still quite full, with no waders - there was an adult Red-kneed Dotterel,
but apart from that, nothing outside the ordinary. The Plover island only had
Masked Lapwings, and I couldn't see any Snipe. No Sharpies or any of the other
usual suspects there. I guess last weekend was still a bit early for them (at
work, don't have access to my records etc). I didn't go to the bird hide, but I
hear that there are some Godwits about. The Triangle Pond has a pair of
Hardhead, and nesting swans, but is way too full for crakes/rails. I'll be back
at Mason Park in 2 weeks to see what else is there, but if you find anything of
interest, I'd be keen to hear.

I am thinking of going to Bicentennial Park in the next week or so.
Does anyone know if the waders have arrived? Is the bird hide the best place
to see them or should we go around to Mason Park?
