Hi Joy

Missed you there on Saturday when I went from the Somerton
Road car park to the sugar gum plantation from c.1330-1530. 
It was very hot and three birds in the grassland were
probably young Richards Pipits (not on the Birding-Aus lists
for the park).

In the Sugar Gums I added to the lists, Satin Flycatcher
(male feeding ?immature male) to the list [records                           
subsequently withdrawn]  and, just beyond,
Jacky Winter and White-browed Woodswallow. young bird. 
There was also a Hare in the woodland and a Jacky Lizard in
the woodswallow's tree.

Adult birds with young included Eastern Rosella, Dusky
Woodswallow (at least 3 families), Tree Martin, Willie
Wagtail and White-plumed Honeyeater.
