   Published sightings for the week ending 16 Nov 2014.

   Sun 16 Nov Royal Spoonbill Queechy Lake
   Two birds in breeding plumage. One 'standing guard', one sitting
   motionless on a stick nest for the twenty minutes I was observing. If
   there are eggs under the sitting bird they would not be visible from
   the viewing platform. Tasmanian breeding record? Australian Reed
   Warbler calling from reeds.

   Fri 14 Nov Curlew Sandpiper Marion Bay
   A single Curlew Sandpiper seen today feeding with Red-necked Stints on
   the edge of the bay just outside the saltmarsh which is adjacent to the
   causeway. It was best seen from the 90 degree corner beside the houses
   accross the causeway. Great scope view but only a distant photograph.
