Pectoral Sandpiper
Boat Harbour, Kurnell
Became aware of this bird when it was reported by a local birding group on 14 Jan. I checked my photos for Boat Harbour and found it in the background of a shot taken 9 Jan. Bird is still there today, making 11 days at least. Good opportunity for clear views of an uncommon bird. eBird checklist

Superb Parrot
Warrumbungle National Park--Gurianawa Track
Approximately six Superb Parrots were observed calling and flying past the Warrumbungle Visitor Centre at 8:15am. This is the first time I have observed these parrots in the park. These parrots have been sighted here by others in the past, but only ever during the autumn and winter months. (Moderator's Note: In my 45 years association with WNP, I have not known them to be present in the general area in January either, and certainly they are more likely to be seen to the west of the Park near Gumin Gumin rather inside the Park.

Fri 17megamegaTerek Sandpiper, Pectoral Sandpiper (2) and many, many waders
Little Forrester River Estuary
I would be lying if I said that this trip to Bridport was anything other than the best fun I've ever had birding! The scores upon scores of waders scurrying across the flats and hiding in the succulents behind the dunes were absolutely astonishing: there were stints, golden plovers, the beautiful Grey Plover seen by several of late, godwits, a lovely knot, my first turnstones for Tasmania and a huge swarm of sharpies in the succulents. It made the terrifying return crossing of the neck deep river and alarmingly powerful tides completely worth it! Even considering the fact the weird and wonderful little Terek, with its soft, harmonious colours and beautiful big eyes, was bagged only after seven hours of hunting, and my dead camera came back to life to capture that beautiful moment, my personal favourite moment was bagging not only the beautiful Pec seen by others of late, but looking back through the photos and seeing another one right behind it! I can't remember the last time in Tasmania there were two Pecs at a single site; I believe it happened once in the 80's? But yes! All in all, it was a truly astounding day's birding, and I would heartily recommend that anyone after any of these species give it a go! eBird checklist
