Education Rd Woodcroft 5162

Peregrine Falcon (1) Peregrine flew in and landed on top of transmission tower, an adult , but no size comparison to determine sex, very dark hood, after brief time flew to east. Good to see again in this area.

Black Point, Y. P.

Double-banded Plover (24) In a flock of 52 shorebirds, with 12 Red-capped Plover & 16 overwintering Red-necked Stint.

When disturbed this flock flew onto a band of seaweed, which camouflaged them really well. I took photos from a distance, pointing the camera in what I hoped was the right spot. The 2 photos are of rather poor quality, but when enlarged greatly did allow a count of part of the flock.

Victor Harbor

Northern Giant-Petrel (1) Immature bird swimming by The Bluff Jetty at the end of Franklin Parade, hoping for scraps from the fishermen.
Brown Quail (6) Earlier in the afternoon on Granite Island, a foraging group passed close to us, unconcerned as we stood quietly, some feeding only 2m from our feet. There were also calls between members of the group. Meanwhile, less quiet park users passed by on the path only 10m away.
Buff-banded Rail (1) A ridiculously tame bird was again foraging near the (closed) Granite Island cafe.
