   Thu 2 Oct Swift Parrot Lake Ginninderra--Macdermott Place
   3 birds observed in Eucalyptus near boat ramp. Heard them before I saw
   them. I've been birding & bird keeping for over 20yrs. Kept Swifts for
   a number of years so well versed in their calls. The three of them were
   clambering around the ends of the branches, hanging upside down in the
   foliage as Swifts do. Bright green, red under-tail (vent), blue
   shoulders, long slender tail, red face & throat with a blue crown.

   Wed 1 Oct Rainbow Bee-eater Mt Majura Nature Reserve
   A small group of Rainbow Bee-eaters (at least four) flew over, and
   landed briefly in the trees at around 11:30am. My first for the season,
   poor photo attached.
