Hi All,

Walked to work through the park last thursday (5/9) and saw 2 Australasian 
Shovelers on the Willow Pond, an unusual species in the park, as well as a male 
White-winged Triller flying into Camphor Laurels on an island in the Duck Pond 
(a first for my park list).  Went to the park yesterday (8/9) for my partner's 
40th birthday family bbq, and before we were blasted away by the southerly 
there were two Olive-backed Orioles in a Plane tree near Musgrave Pond - a 
first for me for the Eastern Suburbs as well as the park. Cheers.
