Thu 21Pied oystercatcher
Deeban Spit Port Hacking
Further to report on 10 February re 96 pied oystercatchers at Taren Point I had forgotten to report on 13 January we successfully fledged a new oystercatcher chick on Deeban Spit, Port Hacking. No mean feat for a busy beach in Australia's largest capital city. Just shows people can share their beaches with beach nesting birds. This was the 4th year of oystercatchers trying to nest here.

Tue 19Sooty Owl
Boorganna Nature Reserve, 1 hour west of Port MacQuarie
Stopped off at this reserve (among others) on a trip from northern NSW back to Sydney and accidentally flushed a Sooty Owl at midday just a few hundred metres along the Rawson Falls track. This reserve of remnant rainforest was generally very lively with other good birds including several pairs of Logrunners, at least 3 Pale-yellow robins, and a Spectacled Monarch.

Long-tailed Jaeger & Flesh-footed Shearwater
Mistral Point, Maroubra
An extremely high count of 112 Flesh-footed Shearwaters was maybe a sign of the upcoming weather system and how birds instinctively know what to do. 14 Pomarine Jaegers, 3 Long-tailed Jaegers, 350 Wedgies, 28 Short-tailed Shearwaters, 4 Fluttering Shearwaters and 1 Hutton’s Shearwater were also noted. Virtually all birds flying South. (Moderator's Note: Exceptional count of Fleshies from shore. The next few days could produce some very interesting seabird observations from shore as well. Apologies but try as I might, I cannot manage to get the photograph to sit up straight! MR).

Wed 20megamegaPectoral Sandpiper, Double-banded Plovers and high numbers of Sharp-tailed Sandpipers
Lake Dulverton Conservation Area (Oatlands)
An extremely enjoyable expedition to Dulverton! The highlight, of course, was the beautiful Pec, as smartly attired and gentle mannered as always. It would only associate with the Double-banded Plovers, which gave me a real shock when I noticed first one, then another, among the Red-capped Plovers, standing out as being a richly cinnamon colour by comparison. Also worth noting is the astonishing numbers of Sharp-tailed Sandpipers, enjoying the low water levels. There were well over fifty birds, and quite possibly a hundred! eBird checklist

Tue 19Australian Bustard
East of Norseman
I saw a total of 7 birds yesterday by the side of the road. First 3 were around 300Km east of Norseman, and the other 4 some 270Km east of Norseman next to Eyre Hwy. I have done the east-west crossing 9 times now and have never before seen any AB's along this stretch of the road (seen one bird in SA once); I thought it worth reporting. The photo is cropped and over-edited
