Tue 30Blue-Winged Parrot
Observed a Blue-Winged Parrot land in a dead Cypress Pine approx 300 metres east of the Plumpton/Melton-Keilor Rd Intersection, on the northern side of the road. Stayed long enough for me to get a positive ID through binoculars but not long enough to get a photo.

Sooty Oystercatcher
Seaholme Beach
Four birds resting and preening on rocks at low tide in the middle of the day. This species and the Pied Oystercatcher reputedly nest along the beach adjoining the former Cheetham Saltworks about 1.5 km across the bay. Unfortunately, this area is now open to people and their dogs.

highlightBeach Stone-curlew
Snowy River estuary
During today's winter 2020 Shorebird count in the estuary to the east of the Snowy River entrance, the Beach Stone-curlew was again observed; this time feeding on soldier crabs at low tide. Marlo residents still regularly report its presence in the general area although it sometimes moves to sheltered locations at Cape Conran particularly when gale force winds and high tides occur along our coastline. It is now some 17+months since it was first recorded on Australia Day 2014. eBird checklist

Australian Bittern
Western Treatment Plant (Werribee)--Western Lagoons
Thanks to Paul Newman who spotted the bird, the bird spent most of the time in the drain on the left hand side as you enter Western Lagoons via Gate 2. It did, however, move around the centre ponds as well. Time was about 4pm.

Freckled Duck
Kings Billabong Wildlife Reserve
Single bird. Close to walks car park at the dam wall, far northern corner of the billabong. Nice record for the morning walk. Possibly a result of the lowering of the water levels in the billabong as part of the CMAs environmental water management program.

Mon 29Swift Parrot
Macleod Station
A flock of approximately 40 Swift Parrots seen still sitting in large River Red Gum in the middle of the park between the station and shops. Observed sleeping, preening and feeding for several hours in the morning unfazed by the noise of demolition below. Worth the drive. Stunning birds!

Sun 14Beach Stone Curlew
Enderby Island, Dampier Archipelago
3 Beach Stone-Curlew feeding in a mangrove bay on the island. One definitely a juvenile and probably this year's offspring from that location, so hopefully a sign of successful breeding there.
