Dave C saw two Mandarin on the spit edge late afternoon on August 1st. This is a tricky species to get on patch, though is just about annual, so I was keen to see them. I wasn't able to get straight down, but when I did arrive, they had typically both departed. So I was very pleased when I popped in after work on the 5th and found what was almost certainly one of the same birds back feeding on the spit.
