Hi all

Saw my first Rufous Fantail for the season at Baldrys Crossing carpark,
Mornington Peninsula, Vic today.  They usually arrive down here at the end
of October so this one was obviously right on schedule.

Expected to see Satin Flycatchers but didn't.  They either haven't arrived
yet or were hiding.

However the 'bird of the day' was an adult Fan-tailed Cuckoo with no tail
which when viewed from behind took a few seconds to identify.

Sorrento, Vic
