BAYBOCA visited The Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve, Frankston North
(suburb of Melbourne, Victoria) on Saturday 25 September.  This is a
fascinating area of remnant heathland and woodland on top of sand dunes,
with some magnificent views towards the Dandenong Ranges, Melbourne and
Port Phillip Bay.  It is a surprising large area and well worth a visit.
 The undoubted highlight of the morning was a Brush Bronzewing sitting
very still in the shadows of several trees just by the golf course
fence.  We were looking down from a ridge and saw it clearly.  Other
highlights were Dusky Woodswallows, Spotted Pardalotes coming out of
nest holes and nine species of honeyeaters (list below).
