Wyong Pioneer Dairy
Wood sandpiper foraging in the shallows at Pioneer Dairy this afternoon. A new bird for me. (Moderator - we're unable to correct this or the Glossy Ibis image).

Glossy Ibis
Wyong Pioneer Dairy
At first overlooked these Ibis mixed in with other resting water birds but took a second look and saw four. (Moderator's note: Rare bird for the Central Coast, lucky to have one or two reports per year! AKM)

highlightBlack Honeyeater, Painted Honeyeater
Durridgere Road, Turill
Male and female Black Honeyeater observed together at Murrumbline Creek on Durridgere Road, Turill (Upper Hunter region). Painted Honeyeaters also seen and heard at several different stops along this road. Seems to be another good year for them in this area. (Moderator's Note: Indeed it seems to be an exceptional year for Painted HEs in the Upper Hunter with numerous localities holding birds, several with 5+ individuals. MR). eBird checklist

highlightAustralian Little Bittern, White-winged Trillers, Rufous Songlark
Richardson Park, Sawtell
Single Little Bittern seen again this morning; seen well, flying across small watercourse, caught something (I couldn't make it out) then flew back across into reeds and rank vegetation. Dark of upperbody deep and uniform so likely to be male. White-winged Trillers present daily, with 1 male and up to 6 females at a time. 1-2 Rufous Songlarks present daily since 14 Oct.

Sun 20highlightAleutian Tern, Little Tern, Red-necked Avocet
Farquhar Inlet, Old Bar
Single Aleutian Tern at Farquhar Inlet yesterday. Flew off just as I arrived but returned a few hours later at about 12:30 on the rising tide. First report for this season (first last year was on 17th Oct). Also of note was numbers of Little Terns (800-900).This is by far my highest count for this site. Only a few local breeders, most (~95%) were non-breeding migrants. Other interesting birds were Red-necked Avocet (my first record here), Great Knot, Curlew Sandpiper, Greater Sand Plover, plus good numbers of the usuals. For full details see ebird list. eBird checklist
