New Sightings 6/12/05

Bill reports that there are now 2 Sanderlings at Marion Bay as well as the previously reported waders. He also says that there may be at least one nest in the area around the Spit, as there was one bird acting aggressively and that the remaining 25 Fairy and 1 Little Terns were favouring the Spit area. I noted that several of the terns seemed interested in an area of shell grit near the Spit end and that close by there was a Pied Oystercatcher nest. Any one venturing down there should exercise caution in this vicinity.

There has been a report of 15 Japanese Snipe at Lake Dulverton, and should be worth following up.
