An hour or so at the north west side of Dowdle Swamp this afternoon yielded 45 species. Best of which the Bush Stone-curlew which has been seen on and off ,was back again. A Western Gerygone was also a first sighting for here.
There are many ducks breeding, mostly Grey Teal and also Hardhead. It worries me what will happen to all these birds when duck shooting starts in a few weeks.
