Bird News from Dominic Le Croissette
A beautiful mild, sunny afternoon spent walking the entire length of all reservoirs in the area, from the south all the way to the north. The drake Baers Pochard was still present and today gave excellent (and fairly close) views in perfect sunlight. 2 Lesser White-fronted Geese (an adult and a juvenile) were also still present, showing well on rice fields near the main Junam walkway with a small flock of around 20 Greater White-fronts. Other than these two outstanding highlights the area has gone fairly quiet birdwise, with the only other noteworthy records today being a Little Bunting, and excellent views of 2 Naumanns Thrushes among the Dusky Thrushes scattered throughout the area.
