Mon 26Ground Cuckoo Shrike
Bingara Cemetery
One Ground Cuckoo Shrike flew over the cemetery while we were photographing the local Bluebonnets. It went to ground outside the cemetery near the old sale yards but couldn't be re-located.

Australian (Pacific) Koel
Eulah Creek
Looks like there are no reports yet from the western side of the ranges; the first male of the season was heard calling at 6:10 this morning at the new concrete bridge across Eulah Creek, ca. 21 km E of Narrabri.

Thu 22highlightBanded Stilts, shorebirds, site report
Salt Lake, northwestern NSW
59 Banded Stilts counted. Also estimated 1,200 Red-necked Avocets (700 counted then extrapolated). Many hundreds Grey Teal and circa 40 Pink-eared Ducks. A small number of Pied Stilts, six Silver Gulls and circa 500 small shorebirds all seeming identical - hopefully photos will reach an ID but they were very distant. Also possibly a half dozen Marsh Sandpipers - again pending photo confirmation. Note - very remote site. 4WD recommended for access. We accessed the lake via a sandy track that joins Silver City Highway at (-30.1383634, 142.1083535) - which is 98km south of Tibooburra. Birds were distant but scoped and we walked a little closer also. (Scope practically mandatory if wanting to observe from end of that track). No mobile coverage. If accessing lake shore, recommend gum boots. Checklist to come in due course. eBird checklist
