Mon: 1 Horsefield Bronze Cuckoo at Little River 500m up from hide at

Tue: 3 Imm. White Fronted Tern at Kerferd Rd Pier, Portmelbourne.

Wed: Leucistic Blackbird in the Melbourne Botanic Gardens still
     seen on every visit since I reported this the first time a
     few weeks back.

Fri: 1 Sooty Oystercatcher at Jawbone Reserve, Williamstown.
     This is the furthest north up the bay I have seen this
     species. Anyone know of any other sightings this far
     north in the bay? I have only ever seen them at Altona 
     (near Skeleton Creek, with a group Pied). I think it
     may be an immature as it had brownish wings.
