Inspired by Bill Jolly, and who isn't on occasion, I set off for the Lockyer
Valley on Sunday with my wife, Kym.  We'd left it a bit late but, in little
over an hour, we had wonderful views of the long-staying Banded Stilt,
Black-tailed Native-hen and Australian Spotted Crake.  Impressive were the
hundreds of Red-necked Avocets, Pink-eared Ducks and Plumed Whistling Ducks,
and a prolonged encounter with a Little Grassbird was good value.  We had to
resist calling in on Abberton this time as Bill Jolly was being upgraded.  I
didn't ask whether it was his capacity, speed or memory (or any combination)
but perhaps it will lead to even more interesting sightings?

Cheers - Trevor Ford.
