A juvenile spoonbill was trying to persuade its mother to feed it but she'd had enough and clearly thought it was time for the youngster to fend for itself.

Wandering slowly north to Blacktoft was my next plan but a mega announcement on Bird Guides woke me up as the mega was at Blacktoft. I was short of time and the world and his friend were at Blacktoft when I arrived. I headed for Singleton, knelt down and watched the sharp-tailed sandpiper before taking some shots. Then after brief chat with Ian who said he'd been trying to get in touch with Barry about the sandpiper I headed home.
Among my photos was a curlew sandpiper

Longer walk than some of the reports suggested but it was a lovely morning near Long Nab north of Scarborough and I soon spotted the group of birders on the cliff top overlooking the gully.
Here's the eastern olivaceous warbler - first view. Someone said 'By the white flower!' I laughed as there were many white bindweed flowers to choose from but, I presume, looking through his scope the speaker could only see one white flower!
Zoomed in! Although very active we had excellent views of the bird in the shrubs just a little below us in the gully.
