Sat 15megamegaBuff-breasted Sandpiper
Port of Brisbane Shorebird Roost
Buff-breasted sandpiper found by Tina Ellen Rider and Sean Nolan on Saturday and twitched by many people over the weekend. The bird is still present this morning (17th) according to a post from Tina on Facebook. The bird tends to prefer the samphire around the second hide (further from the gate). For those going to see it, please take the track along the fence to the second hide rather than the inside track to avoid flushing the birds.

Sun 16Latham's Snipe
Good to see a Latham's Snipe on the edge of a flooded paddock by Railway Parade mid-morning. I've never seen a Latham's Snipe in Tallong, or the southern end of the Southern Highlands.

I was stoked to see a very vocal male Brown Songlark in a paddock on the corner of Warrima Drive and Highland Way early this morning. My first record of Brown Songlark for the Southern Highlands.

Sun 16Lewin's Rail
Deadman Creek - Beechworth
Heard loud advertising 'Kek-Kek-Kek' call coming from a grassy drainage line and dam along Deadman Creek - approx 500m East of the Diffey Road underpass along the Rail Trail. Waited to hear call repeated again to confirm it was not a frog. Over 200mm rain fell locally in the last few days and the broader landscape is saturated - possibly some displacement of species to higher elevations in the catchment. eBird checklist

Sat 15highlightSoft-plumaged Petrel
Port Fairy Pelagic
Some pretty rough and overcast conditions throughout day. Not a huge variety but interesting bunch of birds. Highlight was a Soft-plumaged Petrel that circled boat several times, allowing for good views. Bit of a rarity in Vic waters. Good number of White-chinned Petrel [20-30], several Sooty Shearwater, Hutton's Shearwater and at least 1 possibly 2 Northern Royal Albatross. eBird checklist
