Just two of us at Miranda this morning. We were treated to good views of the Hudwit being attacked by several Barwits giving great views of it in flight as well as on the ground. A Broad-bill was conveniently at the front of the Waybill flock, all this from the main hide. Four Sharpies on the stilt ponds, and a possible sighting of the Sand Plover by Paul just before it took flight. I would just like to publicly say how grateful I was to have Paul with me, probably due to my cardiac problem, I threw a wobbly and might not have got through without him, he even followed me home to keep an eye on me. Many thanks Paul.

This afternoon an adult Black-fronted Dotterel flew in just in front of the stilt hide and stayed for a minute or two before flying on.
