Sun 15highlightLittle Curlew, Long-toed Stint and Yellow Chat
Knuckey Lagoon
A Little Curlew dropped in for half an hour this evening and just quickly bathed, briefly fed and flew off high. The three Yellow Chats are still present, a (presumed) Australian Reed Warbler was also seen briefly. Earlier, in foggy conditions, we observed two Stints fly off, we drew a conclusion that these were the Red-necked Stint and the Long-toed Stint from the previous afternoon. This location is awesome at the moment and well worth regular scrutiny.
