   Short-tailed Shearwaters migrating, and 3 Gibson's Albatrosses which

   Thu 16 Oct Brush Cuckoo, Satin Flycatcher, Glossy Ibis Sandy Camp Road
   At Sandy Camp from 7-8am, water bodies are driest I've seen for a
   while. Two Glossy Ibis were in the front-most pond. Brush Cuckoo &
   Satin Flycatcher were round the back, along the margins of the big
   rearmost pond. Brush Cuckoo was in low vegetation on the left-turn to
   said pond, calling persistently and then seen feeding on a large
   caterpillar. Satin Flycatcher male was seen well in a bare tree at the
   junction of that pond. Colour on head and back was more even and glossy
   than Leadens (which were common throughout), the breast demarcation
   bent downwards and call was slightly different, with a distinct
   whistled follow-through to the standard 'schrep schrep' call.

   Black-faced Monarch Walter Zimmerman Park, Pine Mt
   Seen them around the nearby gully before. Having found a snack, it flew
   my way and buzzed! (30m South of the northern pipeline crossing).

   White-winged Triller Walter Zimmerman Park, Pine Mt
   Unexpected, shiny white, with its black cap, around 15m up in the
   eucalypts. Had the distinct impression that it was passing through.
   (just South of where the park track leaves the Rail Trail)
