Spent a short hour or so at Banyule Flats (along the Yarra River, Rosanna) yesterday morning.  It was too windy for decent watching, but was interesting none the less.   The lagoon is nicely full, and now has shoveller and Black-winged Stilt on it, as well as all the usual suspects, and a Peregrine Falcon on the dead trees in the middle of the water.  The ubiquitous Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos were there, but they are a common sight right along the Yarra these days.  Also met up with a lovely lady out birding whose name I didn't catch, but if you're on this list, hello, and I hope you found the Buff-banded Rail.
