Hi all,

With the kind permission of the observer John Anderson, a photo is now online - 

The bird was seen at 3.50pm yesterday afternoon, "from the western side of the 
lake looking east towards Wanneroo, central / southern part of lake", and last 
seen flying north

Update from this afternoon's relocation efforts (for those luddites not on 
Facebook - like me!), I arrived at about 2pm and scanned from Picnic Cove for 
30mins or so, before moving to the jetty at Edgewater Drive where I stayed 
until about 5.40pm, and was joined by a number of other birders. Others 
positioned themselves at other points around the lake. We did manage a good 
range of raptors, highlighted by Peregrines and Square-tailed Kite, and a small 
mixed flock of Banded Stilt and Red-necked Avocet. Then a report came through 
of a resighting at 5.20pm, but this was later retracted by the observer. So as 
far as I know, no resightings today

At least there were some fellow dippers there to share the pain!

Hi all,

John Anderson has just sent a photo of a male Crested Honey-Buzzard to WA 
Sightings. This was seen at Lake Joondalup in Perth's northern suburbs. No 
further details on location as yet, nor the date of the sighting but I assume 
(hope?!) the last couple of days

Anyway, I'm off!
