Uncommon sighting around the Alexandrina area. Only a few sightings recorded on Hindmarsh Island/Goolwa over the past few years.

User's notes

Notes: All 3 flew over at different times during the 5 minute period. Distinctly identified, 1 male and 2 female birds. Headed over the house, towards Goolwa. First Darters for me, for the year! Very rare around the Alexandrina area. Exciting!
