At lunch today, down at Fyansford, Geelong,  a white morph Grey Goshawk was seen on powerlines next to the Fyansford Tip.

How uncommon are these birds?  This is the first goshawk of any kind i have seen around Geelong.

That's a very likely place to see them in winter - I have many winter records from exactly the same area.  They range along the river into Newtown too.  

Australian Hobby, Peregrine Falcon, Little Eagle, Whistling Kite, Wedge-tailed Eagle and Brown Goshawk are all regular there too.  Look out for brown Pink Robins too at Fyansford - plus various other bush birds.
