   Wed 21 Jan Glossy Black-Cockatoo 43 Gatton Street, Grandchester
   Heard the glossies calling in amongst the sulphur crested racket this
   morning (06:11). Went outside and watched 6 fly right overhead (NW) in
   the direction of their feeding area on top of the ridge. Haven't seen
   them for over 12 months. Did not have enough time to attempt to tell
   sexes. Strangely, as they flew away the sulphur crested noise followed
   them. I did not see any sulphur cresteds (too many trees on my block),
   but it sounded like they were following the glossies or even making
   sure they kept moving through their (the sulphur crested's) territory?

   Mon 19 Jan Wood Sandpiper, Pectoral Sandpiper, Pale-vented Bush-hen
   Dowse Lagoon, Sandgate
   Wood Sandpiper is back again this evening after a 3 week absence, a
   single Pectoral is back too, both at the northern end. Good views of a
   pair of Bush-hens picking their way along the southern bank, clearly
   saw the pair, but there may have been 3 or 4.
