Thanks everyone who responded to my RFI Freckled Duck, Australian Shelduck and 
Australasian Bittern. I didn't have time to drive down to the ACT area. Also I 
thought I should participate in the Swift Parrot/Regent Honeyeater survey.
I went to Cumberland State Forest and to various places in the Hawkesbury 
(Richmond/Windsor) area. I saw 80 bird species, but nothing extraordinary and 
none of the above...
In Cumberland SF I had lots of Rainbow, Scaly-breasted and Musk Lorikeets - but 
no sign of Swift Parrots...
Also in Cumberland SF there were four species of Cockatoos: Sulphur-crested 
Cockatoo, Galah, Long-billed and Little Corella (plus Eastern and Crimson 
Rosella, and later Red-rumped and Australian King Parrots - good parrot day)
Not too many honeyeaters around today (except for all the Noisy and Bell 
Miners). Three singing Scarlet Honeyeaters at Mitchell Park - but no Regent 
Four species of heron/egret at Pitt Town Lagoon and surrounds: Eastern Great 
Egret, Intermediate Egret, Cattle Egret and White-faced Heron - but no
