Partly cloudy, mild. Mostly there to film birds and collect sound. Went to east side/Lagoon Rd and sat near shoreline and mudflats below historic brown cottage.

Observations

  1. Number observed: 7
  2. Number observed: X

    Comments: Prob a couple of dozen teal but hard to ID further in late afternoon light. At least five though are Grey Teal.

  7. Number observed: 12
  8. Number observed: 40

    Comments: Conservative count. Foraging and occasionally disturbed by sea eagles.

  9. Number observed: 22

    Comments: Water has receded again creating muflats and very shallow margins. 22 is conservative as only counted those dotterels in our vicinity (we mostly stayed in one spot).

  10. Number observed: 1

    Comments: A male snipe must have been crouching in short grass. One of us accidentally flushed it when walking a short distance from our set-down point. It flew to an island. Photos taken at that point. Judging by markings on wing etc we suspect it's the same male we saw in spring 2017.
