Bushells Lagoon
There were 6 Whiskered Terns initially seen perched on the posts within the lagoon and then foraging over he lagoon which included both adults in summer plumage and a young bird. Not as many waterbirds as Pitt Town Lagoon with water levels still quite high.

Pitt Town Lagoon
The female Australian Painted Snipe was seen again in early part of the morning for quite an extended period - though quite distant where a spotting scope was definitely needed. it stood for quite some time beside the reeds on the far western side of the lagoon as viewed through my spotting scope. We also had 2 young Australian Shelducks, 2 Baillon's Crakes, 4 Yellow-billed and 21 Royal Spoonbills as well as 7 Sharp-tailed Sandpipers. There are thousands of waterfowl there at the moment with well over 2,500 Teal (mainly Chestnut) and some Pink-eared Ducks and Australasian Shovelers among them.

Tue 10White-throated Nightjar
Blue Mountains National Park--Glenbrook entrance
Large numbers of Nightjars on our owling walk tonight. One was flushed from presumed day roost just on sunset by a pair of Magpies. Then once dark we played some calls, two came flying in, one perching very close the other circling. Another two were heard in the same period of the two that were with us so assumed two pairs are present. eBird checklist

megamegaPink-eared Duck
Queechy Lake
Pair with 3 ducklings first seen 3rd Feb. (but I'd not been for 2 weeks so not sure when they emerged or how many). This is 3rd year Pink-eared Ducks have bred at Queechy Lake but much later and with fewer ducklings than before. Theory: 1 or 2 pairs could have been nesting in October before North Esk flood of 13 October 2022 swamped Queechy Lake destroying low-lying nests, eggs, even ducklings of all species. So this is a 2nd attempt.
