   Fri 24 Oct Great Crested Grebe, Freckled Duck, Hardhead, Australasian
   Shoveler Goulds Lagoon
   From the train line at the eastern side of the lagoon, we saw 7 Great
   Crested Grebes in the middle of the Derwent. One pair were engaged in
   courtship rituals. On the lagoon there were a number of Freckled Ducks
   (about 8) and many Hardheads and Shovelers. Three Dusky Moorhens were
   also spotted. [Some good numbers there, Paul - Moderator]

   Tue 21 Oct Common Sandpiper Fishpond, Ulverstone
   One bird seen in the same site as in previous years. Apparently
   recently arrived as we have been watching this spot since the beginning
   of September. We hope that it will remain here for our summer.

   Stubble Quail Sisters Beach
   Sporadic, strident, far-carrying call emanating from unmown grass at
   roadside, dawn until about 0830. Female walked out into the open to 3m
   from my feet for unimpeded views of plumage. Not known if wild bird or
   aviary escapee. Call also heard 2-3 km away in Rocky Cape National Park
   11y ago.
