Greetings all,

I'm in Melbourne for a few days visiting from Adelaide and had a short walk 
around Ruffy Park Lake yesterday morning (Saturday, 17th August 2002) and was 
pleased to see seven species of parrot/cockatoos
Rainbow, Little and Musk Lorikeets, Red-rumped Parrots, Eastern Rosellas, 
Galahs and most pleasantly at least 16 Gang-gang Cockatoos in the eucalypts 
lining the creek.

Also saw Little Lorikeets in the Melbourne Botanic Gardens, no Swift Parrots 
however.  Little Lorikeet's  a bird I've not seen very often so excuse my 

We're off this morning to drive back to Adelaide via the Great Ocean Road.

All the best

Philip Griffin
