Noted 5 Little Egrets at Marion Bay this morning. Couldn't get within "shooting" distance, so no pix. Two were sporting the long head plumes of breeding plumage, so I suspect they are most likely new arrivals, although I'm aware that some spend Summer here. 40+ Sulphur-crested Cockatoo near Marion Bay turn off. On or near Marion Bay Spit-- 12 Hooded Plover (5ad. and 7 Juv.), 36 Bar-tailed Godwit, 14 Pelican, c150 Red-necked Stint, c5 Double-banded Plover.
