Birdline Western Australia

Published sightings for the week ending 5 Jan 2014.

Wed 1 Jan       Brown-headed Honeyeater Eadine Springs, Clackline
The area around the springs was profuse with mistletoe in flower. Bird noises 
and activity everywhere. Several Brown-headed Honeyeaters plus White-cheeked 
and Brown. I was there for a social event so didn't spend too much time birding.

Sun 29 Dec      Sanderling Woodman Point Reserve, Munster
Parked at Jervoise Bay Yacht Club and then walked along beach from there to the 
rock groyne with the Sculpture on it. Weather fine and sunny with no wind until 
about 8:30am when the seabreeze kicked in. Sanderling (1) On beach near the 
Ross Jones

        Glossy Ibis Bannitup Lake 12k east of Esperance -33.49.40S 122.04.03E
Two Glossy Ibis flew in to the lake 80 metres from our position during a 
routine count of water and shorebirds and remained for our duration. These 
birds are very unusual for this area and the last recalled sighting is around 
ten years ago at Lake Wheatfield. Waterbirds abundant, migratory waders low in 
numbers and only 2 species. Water level still too high resulting in limited 
wading area. Seven observers present. This lake is difficult to access as 
private land is involved. Suggestion is that they could be found in the 
adjacent Warden Wetlands, the direction from which they came.
