Sun 25Wood, Marsh Sandpipers
Balaklava
2 Wood Sandpipers and 1 Marsh Sandpiper at former Balaklava effluent ponds. Normally dry, this area now has some water after nearly 80 mm. of rain. Unfortunately, all Balaklava's effluent water is now diverted to the local racecourse. This has been to the detriment of ducks, some waders and many other water birds with the loss of permanent water habitat. Over the last few years, I have recorded over 80 bird species in, around and over the effluent ponds.

Lake Cooper
2500 Sharpies and 400 Red-necked Stints, 5 Marsh Sandpipers, probably 1000 Whiskered Terns and 7000 Grey Teals although numbers of the latter hard to estimate because of heat haze and distance. Lots of Black-winged Stilts and Red-necked Avocets. eBird checklist

highlightPilotbird
McGee Road, Spargo Creek
Mid afternoon observed a single Pilotbird along McGees Road. Very surprised to see one at this location. Moderators note: this record warrants further investigation as it is a significant range expansion, the bird was heard as well as seen.
