Fri 21Beach Stone-curlew
Queensland Alumina Limited, Parsons Pt, Gladstone (restricted access)
During our latest monthly QAL wader survey we observed a single Beach Stone-curlew. The bird was roosting on a stony levy at the Ash Pond. We (Margaret, Cheryl and myself) have got an excellent view of the bird that after 10 minutes flew away. Other interesting birds during the survey include: Australian Hobby, Brown Goshawk, White-necked Heron and large flock of Gull-billed Tern.

This Brahminy Kite was photographed at Snapper Point. One had been photographed by another observer at Wybung Head a couple of weeks earlier. There were several White-bellied Sea Eagles flying in the same area.

Mon 17Emerald Dove
Ourimbah Ck Rd Ourimbah
On the Central Coast there are only occasional observations of Emerald Doves (now known as Brown-capped Emerald Dove) and then only one bird is seen at a time. On 16 July 2017 Rosanna Jones who lives along Ourimbah Ck Rd Ourimbah saw 3 Emerald Doves together with a Brown Cuckoo-Dove, on her front verandah. The house is located within some rainforest habitat. The birds returned the following day and she was then able to take this photo. None could be found today 22/7/17 and the reason the Doves were on her verandah is not understood as she does not feed the birds!
