Two birds located on a dune on the right hand track just before 'Little

Sun 28 Sep Square-tailed Kite, Pacific Baza (3) Tondoon Botanic
One adult SQT cruising above the treetops at the orchard behind the
lake. A family of 3 Bazas are very vocal around the cafe and above the
lake at the moment as well.
Sat 27 Sep Zitting Cisticola (2) Port Alma Rd, near Cheetham Salt Works
After looking at HANZAB and consulting with people / looking at images
online, I am now happy to identify two cisticolas that we saw while
searching for the Yellow Chats on Saturday as Zitting Cisticolas. This
ID was based on plumage characteristics mentioned in HANZAB, and on
calls heard in flight. I have fixed our original site list to include
these birds. Further information including a summary from HANZAB can be
found in the link.
