Thu 14highlightAleutian Tern (important information regarding access)
Farquhar Inlet, Old Bar
Birders are reminded that there is an active Little Tern nesting colony within the estuary that may inadvertently be disturbed by people trying to access the area where the Aleutian Terns are being seen. Little Terns are listed as Endangered in NSW and this colony is actively managed by the NSW National Parks Wildlife Service, who have requested that all birders follow the below route when accessing the inlet (refer to attached map). Park at the beach access which is about 700m along the track from the caravan park, then walk up the main beach north until the fence on your left stops. Then you can cut left, and backtrack to wherever the Aleutian Terns are roosting. This avoids any confusion as to where the Little Terns and Red-capped Plovers are/aren't nesting. Note this is an old aerial photo and the opening/entrance to the estuary is currently closed. Rangers will be present over the coming days to make sure people are doing the right thing. 15 birds have been confirmed as present at the site today (14/12)

Wed 13Turquoise Parrot (12), Diamond Dove (6)
Binya State Forest--Wattle Dam
At 38 degrees I sat for 4 hours at the dam and 27 species came in for a drink. The Turquoise Parrots were mostly males coming in singly and no juvenile birds were seen so they must be still breeding. The parrots came in at all times whilst I was watching. See eBird list for details. eBird checklist
