Black-winged Stilt


I had a spare couple of hours yesterday and checked west of town..............


Birds were a bit thin on the ground but at least there was 1 Black-winged Stilt.................


This is an overshoot visitor I see most springs these days.....................


The only other waders were 5 Grey-tailed Tattlers, one of which had been banded in Queensland.

The Stilt was quite active.................




It was feeding a lot, catching bugs on the beach and then washing them in the river............






Not much else around: a few straggling ducks and gulls but nothing noteworthy.............







I took a quick walk along the river near my flat today. Not much around and almost no migrants. 1 female Blue and white Flycatcher and the usual common breeders only including Siberian Stonechat and Chestnut-eared Bunting.
