One today at 1030 (EST) by the Elster Creek near the St
Kilda St bridge. 

It was on a mown bank on the south side of the creek for
about 1 minute before disappearing into the rushes. 

The first definite City of Bayside record (after my glimpse
of a "certain probable" one at Cheltenham Park last year).

Also around Elsternwick Park/Golf Course, Spotted Pardalote,
probably Striated Pardalote (from call) and a small "brown"
robin with no visible white over bill.  The vivid white of
the wingbars make me suspect immature Flame.
