Wed 15Little Eagle
Tomerong, South of Nowra
A pair loitering overhead.I was alerted by all the locals suddenly charging about in a panic, including flock of straw-necked ibises from field next door. If I had gone into the house to get the binos for sure the birds would have disappeared- so 'naked eye' observation.Kite-sized, tails neither long,short,forked nor particularly square-ended.White undersides reflecting in the sunlight.Wings mostly bent. Underwings light and dark.Not sea eagles, harriers or kites.Process of elimination, plus visible characteristics-little eagles.

Tue 14Blue-billed Duck, Glossy Ibis
Fivebough Swamp, Leeton
Pair of Blue-billed Duck on the ponds possibly nesting. Only the male visible for several minutes and he kept disappearing in the cumbungi in the centre of the ponds or displaying near them. Eventually after a disturbance and the hundreds of Teal took flight the female appeared from the cumbungi that the male had previously been swimming in to. Also a pair of Glossy Ibis were close to a large flock of Swamphens on the main water body. Two pair of Shovellers and a lone male Hardhead also seen along with the usual.
