   Published sightings for the week ending 12 Oct 2014.

   Sun 12 Oct Square-tailed Kite Samford Conservation Park
   Good views of a Square-tailed Kite flying low over the canopy (heading
   north-east) along The Chute, at approx. 4.30 pm. STKs are occasionally
   seen around Keperra and Ferny Grove, but thought it to be worth noting
   as a record for Samford CP.

   Thu 9 Oct Nankeen Kestrel Orange Grove Rd / Kessels Rd intersection,
   I was surprised to see a Kestrel hovering above the road this morning
   on my way to uni. Occasionally I will see Black-shouldered Kites in
   this area, but this is the first Kestrel I've seen. Perhaps it followed
   the Rocky Waterholes creekline from the Oxley Creek Common area or the
   Brisbane Golf Club. Archerfield Airport is also nearby as the Kestrel
   flies... :)

   a female Black-breasted Button Quail was around the large fig towards
   the end of the track.
