Hi all

Just thought I would share some birding moments from home that are a bit different to the norm.

On Friday we had 3 Musk Lorikeets come in and drink at one of our cattle troughs. I have heard them flying over during the last couple of weeks and this is only our second record for the property.

Yesterday , on the way into Dungog there were 3 Rainbow Bee-eaters hawking around close to the river. I haven't seen any around for a few years.

In the evening we had around 80 Galahs feeding in an 8 metre high Cassuarina ( River Oak ) in our back yard. A fantastic colour against the setting sun, not to mention the noise!
