Geese and Brolgas on the volcanic plain

G'day all

I spent yesterday (Thursday 27/6) visiting some properties on the Victorian
volcanic plain in the Colac, Cressy, Mortlake, Penshurst areas.  Not
birding but managed to find two Cape Barren Geese in a roadside paddock
about 5km south of Cressy on the Colac road.  Also I heard Brolgas
trumpeting in a paddock near Colac (couldn't see them so don't know how
many) and saw 2 in a paddock west of Hexham.

Re the Geese:  Why are they on the mainland in the middle of winter?  I
thought that was when they are on their islands to breed.
