G'day all

There is a brilliant male Orange Chat on Griffith's Island, Port Fairy
(south west Victoria) at the moment.  Someone reported this to Rob
Farnes of Heywood who verified it and I saw the bird yesterday.

It was in a small bay a few hundred metres west of the lighthouse.  This
bay has a beach and a large rock wall protecting it from the ocean.  The
bird was feeding among the rocks on the western side of the beach and
among sea-weed on the beach.  White-fronted Chats were present but the
Orange Chat seemed to be indifferent to them.

What a beautiful bird!
