Dear all

Few migrants reported but there was an Horsfields Bronze-cuckoo
at Long Hollow Reserve last week and Red-necked Stints at
Ricketts Point at the end of August.

A few Long-billed Corellas have been moving around the golf
courses (and some Little Corellas have been reported nearby).

A confiding Great Egret has been at Basterfield Park for at
least 9 days, feeding on invertebrates - and ducklings !

The Black-tailed Native-hen at the Brighton Golf Course has now
been there for 22 days and comes to fight for its share of oats
and bread thrown from the corner of Were and Creswick Streets
c8am and 5pm.

Even more remarkable to me.  A Brown Froglet was calling there
yesterday.  And those Gang-gangs are still around on day 135
since they arrived on 28/4.
