Red-necked Avocet, Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, Lathams Snipe
Bicentennial Park (Sydney Olympic Park)--Waterbird Refuge
Over 300 Red-necked Avocets counted on the Waterbird Refuge this morning, including many juveniles with very faded looking heads. (I counted 315, but there was a bit of moving around going on so I adjusted down slightly). This is by far the largest number I have ever seen here. Also 35 Sharp-tailed Sandpipers feeding in the NW corner. Single Lathams Snipe flushed from the corner of the Noprthern Water Feature closes to the stadiums.

Mon 19Marbled Frogmouth, Sooty Owl, Southern Boobook
Minyon Valley, near Nightcap NP
While conducting nocturnal surveys I observed and heard 3 pairs of Marbled Frogmouth along approximately 300 - 400m of creek transect. All appeared to be interacting on territory boundaries. None more than 150 - 200m apart. No call playback used. One pair appeared to follow me as I used my spotlight to search for frogs. They called continuously which then appeared to prompt the others to call in response and move closer. Often all birds calling at once which was an incredible experience. This is the greatest density that I have recorded. Also heard a single Sooty Owl and single Southern Boobook in same area. Other fauna of interest included at least 2 Eastern Tube-nosed Bat.

highlightAleutian Tern
Farquhar Inlet, Old Bar
For those wondering whether to make the trip ... there were still 5 birds present on small sand islets at 10 o'clock this morning. The patch behind the head on one of the birds was noticeably darker than that on its companions - I assume this is a sign that it is beginning to assume breeding plumage
