SHANGRI LA, SUNDAY
Awesome to get permission to wander around private property by Shangri La Rd yesterday. My thanks to landowners. Got into some terrific boggy heath country near main dam which has potential for Southern Emu-wrens and King Quail. Flushed a Latham's Snipe (just returned from Japan) from dam fringes. Other birds of note: Hoary-headed Grebes, Hardhead, Golden-headed Cisticola, Little Grassbird, Australasian Reed-warbler and Richard's Pipits. LJ, OCtober 20 2014.
