Yesterday I visited one of my favourite birding spots, an locality called Kinchina some 10km west of Murray Bridge in South Australia. (35 06' 46"S   139 11' 25"E)
This was the first chance I have had to test out my new GPS recently purchased from Birds Australia especially for Atlassing. 
The following species were recorded breeding:
Singing Honeyeater - feeding 2 young in nest
Common Starling - feeding recently fledged young
Common Bronzewing - flushed from nest
White Winged Chough - at least 1 young in nest
Australian Magpie - feeding fledged young 
Two Willie Wagtails were acting out hostilities around a Grey Butcherbird, but no nest or young were sighted.
Several Rainbow Birds were also sighted but 20 minutes of observations did not reveal any nest visits.
