Black Point, Y.P.

Bar-tailed Godwit (1) Just the one Godwit seen at the sandspit area of Black Point on the evening high tide, but it was of interest to me personally, being the first time I have seen this species there, & also I was able to have a good view of this bird which was a juvenile, with a lot of colour on the head & neck. It was not there the next day, & I hope that it joined the rest of the flock which I presume it would have travelled with on its southward migration.
Red-necked Stint (170) There was also present a flock of these birds, sheltering from the strong wind among the seaweed near the water's edge.They had arrived by October 4th, when I was interested to see that some still had red necks & many were each roosting on one leg. In fact when disturbed they hopped away on their one legs!

Corner of Linden St & Ponsonby St, Welland.

Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike (1) A single bird seen in small roadside paperbark trees and on nearby home phone lines. It flew about a bit, much to the consternation of several New Holland Honeyeaters, and occasionally dived down onto a lawn, at one stage returning to the phoneline with a worm, which it then ate.

Flinders Park

Rainbow Bee-eater (3) Three birds stopping briefly in a flowering apple tree then moving north. Was alerted to their presence by their calling. On flying north they seemed to mingle with Welcome Swallows. Last seen near Grange Road about 200 m east of Findon Road.
