Cape Barren Geese at Washdyke Lagoon

Postby Paul Sagar » Mon May 18, 2020 12:24 pm

Joy & I resumed our monthly surveys of Washdyke Lagoon this morning and among the massed array of waterfowl were 2 Cape Barren Geese, the first that we had seen there since Feb 2017.
As expected, Black-fronted Dotterels had returned to the lagoon for the winter, with 11 counted on the mudflats along the western shore of the northern end of the lagoon.
