Today Sunday May 5, 11.30am.
Melway ref 47H11, between Laurel Grove and Pakenham Street.
On the creek, and on both sides in tall eucalypts.

Excellent, head-height views of a single male, then a male and
female/immature sitting quietly on branches over the water, and moving
cautiously down to drink (I presume, not actually seen).

Minimum of five seen. Heard on the wing in the near distance a few

The same spot where a small party viewed several years ago, so
apparently on a migration pathway.
