Records from Bayside, SE Melbourne, include 4 in a Sandringham suburban
street on 12/3/88 (published in Bird Observer no 676) and one in a Black
Rock street on 28/2/83.

The other 20+ records all refer to the Spring St area of Sandringham
where there were 3 birds around 1991 with unsuccessful nesting (non
birdo report).  Earliest date from this area was 29/5/82 (Bird Observer
607).  Series of records of single birds from 7/93 to 5/96. Now presumed
to have died out at this locality.

I believe there are other recent records from the Royal Botanic Gardens
and another suburban Melbourne site.
