After successfully twitching the Paradise Shelduck in light rain on 6
January 2016, my wife and I stayed in the Nowra Motor Inn at the junction of
Kalandar & Kinghorne Streets Nowra, a very urban area. At dusk, well before
it was fully dark and after the rain had ceased, two or more Bush
Stone-curlews were calling from somewhere very close to that location. I was
too tired and wet to investigate. Alan Morris tells me that Bush
Stone-curlews have nested in Nowra in the past but he knows of no reports
since at least 2010.

On the way home we stayed at Mallacoota where I saw Figbirds in Victoria for
the first time. Long-time resident Bob Semmens told me that he knew of two
Figbird nests in the township there this last season and considers that the
species is becoming more prevalent.
