Hi All
     Gayle McDonald has requested any birding-aus members who may have kept records, with species numbers if possible, for the Gresswell Grange Lakes, Gresswell Forest or Gresswell Hill to forward the information to:
Atlas of Victorian Wildlife
Attention Andrew Corrick 
Email:  as most of the records are couple of years old. Any other wildlife seen should also be included.  
Gayle would particularly appreciate anyone who saw the Garganey or any raptors to forward their sightings. 
Request #2.  Does anyone have GPS co-ordinates for the lake/rotunda please?.  White-throated Needletails put in an appearance today and I would like to forward the sightings to Mike T. This would also be helpful to people sending in their reports to the Wildlife atlas, so a general posting may be in order. 
No sign of the Little Bittern for a few weeks now.  Maybe they've just moved on or the deliberate destruction of the limb, which they apparently regularly used, being chopped and thrown into the reedbed opposite the rotunda would not have helped!
When I arrived late this afternoon, a ruckus was in progress.  Someone thought it would be a good idea to let their 3 large dogs romp around in the water near the above reedbed.  When approached by a local chap who tried to explain the importance of the lake, and it was not appreciated/allowed for dogs to disturb the wetlands, he was abused in some very blue language...
The chap arrived back at the rotunda rather shaken, but the ignoramus had collected his dogs and moved on.
Happy birding
