Finding the nest of a Red-kneed Dotterel was the highlight of the past month. This charming wader has been absent from the district over the past couple of years – it favours shallow wetlands and could be found in good numbers after the big wet of 2010/11, but disappeared quickly as the Moolort wetlands dried up in 2012. Not many birders get the opportunity to find this species breeding so it was a rare privilege to discover a nest, with four beautifully patterned eggs, recently at Lignum Swamp.
