A Black Falcon in tail & wing molt was seen over the southern end of Marks 
Lane, Atherton this morning. Another bird (or perhaps event he same one as it 
was also in tail molt) seen early afternoon over fields west of Kaban Road.

Marsh Sandpipers x8 at Harper Avenue, Tinaburra along with 7 Pacific Golden 
Plovers, two dozen Red-necked Stints and three dozen Sharp-tailed Sandpipers. 
Whiskered & Caspian Terns there too. I could not find the previously sighted 2 
Greenshank this morning. Interestingly all the plovers and Sharpies are first 
year birds.

At Hasties Swamp there are at least 13 Freckled Duck, a couple of Lathams 
Snipe, 1 Yellow-billed Spoonbill and 1 Marsh Sandpiper. Sharpies here are a mix 
of ages. 

A single Dusky Woodswallow remains at the northern end of McKeown Road, west of 

At least ten Blue-faced Parrot-Finches along Kenny Road Millaa Millaa.
