Hi everyone,

Yesterday (31st Aug) the first returning Wood Sandpiper at Herdsman Lake, Perth 
appeared at 'Kakadu' (a shallow bay just west of the wildlife centre that can 
attract an abundance of wetland birds). This species seems to be the first 
migratory shorebird to show up at the lake each year, probably because the 
winter rains cause water levels to be too high for most other species. Last 
year, the first Wood Sandpiper arrived September 7th, so a bit earlier this 
year. I'm betting a Common Greenshank will be next.

Good birding,

Nigel Jackett,
Perth, WA
