G'day all

Unusual sighting of a Leaden Flycatcher in my brother's backyard in West
Heidelberg, Melbourne, yesterday (18th October 1998).  The bird was a male
and was seen on several occasions during the day.  West Heidelberg is
about as unfriendly to native birds as any Melbourne suburb so I was quite
suprised at this sighting.

Can any of the Melbourne birders comment on the frequency of Leaden
Flycatchers in Melbourne?
