Hi All,

Just a quick message to show that Bill Jolly doesn't have the monopoly when it comes to birding! Marie and I went for a walk around Lake Samsonvale this morning seeing Spotted Harrier, White-phase Grey Goshawk, Owlet-Nightjar, nesting Barred Cuckoo-shrike and an unidentified Buttonquail (probably Painted in a grassy habitat) Returned around 11am, just as Gavin Goodyear arrived and in his normal unassuming manner let us know of the find of the day. At Apex Park just outside of Dayboro he had discovered a 'feeding-frenzy' of cuckoos, all feasting on caterpillars in a small copse of trees over a BBQ area. There were at least 2 Oriental Cuckoos, several Fan-tailed and Brush (including juveniles) 2 to 3 Shining Bronze and a Horsfield's, and Channel-bills were calling overhead. Suprisingly the Orientals were rather less timid than I have noticed on previous occasions and allowed reasonable shots to be taken. Please have a look at the resultant images on our Photo-Gallery website at

Cheers Gavin!

Tom & Marie
