Mon 20White-throated Nightjar
Mungalla Station--Forrest Beach, Queensland
White-throated Nightjar flushed this morning from southwest boundary fenceline where paperbarks meet mangroves. Large, dark bird with no white showing in wings or tail. Wings more angular and flight much less 'floaty' than Large-tailed. No hint of species presence previously. Too quickly gone for photo.

Tue 21highlightCommon Sandpiper
Fishpond, Ulverstone
One bird seen in the same site as in previous years. Apparently recently arrived as we have been watching this spot since the beginning of September. We hope that it will remain here for our summer.

highlightStubble Quail
Sisters Beach
Sporadic, strident, far-carrying call emanating from unmown grass at roadside, dawn until about 0830. Female walked out into the open to 3m from my feet for unimpeded views of plumage. Not known if wild bird or aviary escapee. Call also heard 2-3 km away in Rocky Cape National Park 11y ago.

First spring return. Calling by the creek at the reserve. Again always the last spring migrant to return. eBird checklist

highlightChannel-billed Cuckoo
The strangest birding experience I have had for some time. While sitting in my office at work I heard the loud, bizarre and unmistakable call of a Channel-billed Cuckoo, I raced outside and saw it briefly flying off to the east chased by the local magpies. It was likely around later in the afternoon as many of the local birds were very agitated with many alarm calls. First record in these parts and very rare in Victoria in general. eBird checklist

Mon 20Marsh Sandpiper
Coliban Water Treatment Plant, Epsom, Bendigo
Marsh Sandpiper seen today. Not sure if one has been recorded here before. Also White-browed Scrubwrens - haven't seen these in 6 years of visiting the site.

At least two Southern Whiteface (others may have seen more) seen along Sievers Lane on a bird walk held by the Baynton-Sidonia Landcare Group on a property where a natural bush regeneration project is being undertaken.

Tue 7highlightOriental Plover
Eyre Bird Observatory beach
Sorry about the late report but just arrived home to Victoria and going thru and identifying my photos from my recent trip to SW WA. A group of x5 birds on the shore line on the beach in front of EBO. I am told this is an unusual sighting for this area.
