There have been several Dusky Woodswallows hawking around the hill in Quarries Park Clifton Hill since late last week. I’ve seen them very irregularly in this spot

a few times since the early 80s. They turn up nearly every year in nearby Yarra Bend Park.


Also on Sunday 25th September, an Olive-backed Oriole calling from riverside vegetation close to the freeway bridge over the Yarra, downstream of Fairfield Park boathouse.


Any other sightings of these birds in inner Melbourne this year?
