Today, Wednesday, there were four Tree Martins and one Fairy
Martin at the lake on the south side of Elsternwick Park.

I know of only 4 previous records for martins in the City of
Bayside, all but one being more than 10 years old.

The birds were resting on the dried-out bank of the lake and
occasionally feeding.  I wonder if they are refugees from
fire or drought ...
