Hi all,

Had a brief cycle along the paths at Oxley Ck Common today, with some
success.  It was more recreation than anything, however saw a
White-breasted Woodswallow harrassing an Australian Hobby (which was
most unimpressed - all but ignoring the attacks), and three Glossy
Ibis coming in to roost.  I still haven't been to OCC without having
seen a Glossy Ibis, so obviously a good spot for them.  With the
recent rains there is no mud exposed for waders or rails and crakes,
so nothing exciting to note there.  Total birds seen: 24 in under a
half hour.
