highlightSwift parrot
Connie Lowe Reserve, Rouse Hill
Still present in the gums around the off-leash dog park. About 16 in the area include what appeared to be younger birds (dull red faces and mottle plumage on back), moving back and forth. Only calling pre-flight. All had left by about 8:10. They were coming down low at times but persistently harassed and chased by red wattlebirds when they did so. eBird checklist

Tue 21highlightCurlew Sandpiper and other waders
Orielton Lagoon
In a terrific day at Orielton, I saw this very handsome and approachable Curlew Sandpiper associating with the Double-banded Plovers at Shark Point Road. Also present were at least six Eastern Curlews, seven Bar-tailed Godwits and roughly ten Red-necked Stints. Very nice to see all the waders back! eBird checklist
