There are still four Freckled Duck at Gum Swamp, Forbes 393 km west of
Sydney.  They were on a log in the middle of the lagoon, being circled by
Pink-eared and Blue-billed ducks & Hoary-headed Grebe.  Quite a sight!

Other good birds seen on the weekend: Musk Lorikeets at the Western Plains
zoo at Dubbo and Blue Bonnets at Gunningbland.

The inland rains continue.  I wonder if there will be a repeat of the
conditions which brought on the miles of Mitchell Grass just east of Broken
Hill.  This invited good flocks of Flock Pigeons and many quail.  There is
so much Mugga Ironbark and White Box in bud that come spring the
honeyeaters wont know were to go.
