Sat 16highlightAleutian Tern - plus great selection of waders
Farquhar Inlet, Old Bar
13 birds today but outnumbered by birders. Ranger put fence back up (no impact to birding as birds can be easily seen outside the fence) but ranger says it will likely be pulled down by tomorrow by 4WD people. Apparently 1 bird (last?) left for the sea at 8:15am. Then nothing until... 2 birds came in at 10:30 (when tide was high), flew some circuits and went back out to sea. Then at 11am (tide falling) birds started to come in. By 1pm there were at least 13 birds closely associating with each other. 2 nearby Common Terns. Birds stayed until about 2:30pm when started to fly out. Also 1 Terek Sandpiper, 1 Beach Stone-curlew, 6 Sanderling, 40 Eastern Curlew, 1 lesser and 2 greater sand plovers, plus 3 osprey.

Fri 15Dollarbird
Upper Eden Creek, near Kyogle
My sister, Merrilyn Garbutt, reports several Dollarbirds together sun-bathing on the ground on or next to the road at her farm in what seemed to be a social event. Very warm day, with the birds gaping and wings spread.
