Crested grebe at Fortrose, Southland

Postby Phil Rhodes » Sun Jun 21, 2020 8:39 pm

During out winter wader count this weekend Lloyd Esler spotted a Crested grebe in the Fortrose Estuary, looks like a first for this location. Neil Robertson also had an interesting find at Riverton Estuary when he spotted a Black stilt during his count and on Friday a Marsh crake was reported from the Tip Lagoon opposite the boardwalk in the small island of jointed rush where the spoonbills usually gather.
