A trip to Jack Smith Lake, Vic. this morning, produced 25 Golden Plovers,
some in breeding plumage, feeding on wet glasswort flats. Also had a great
view of an Australian Hobby catching dragon flies in the air above our
heads. The area has had an unholy hammering from duck shooters, with the
result that the huge numbers of ducks present prior to the season have
dispersed, along with the Royal Spoonbills and Black-winged Stilts.
At Moroka in the high country yesterday, the Flame Robins were flocking up,
predominantly brown birds, but with the occasional mature male. Duncan
