I heard the cheerful buzzing twitter of
Greenfinches singing from the pine trees right near the entrance to the old bus
depot markets on Sunday (16 Jan) at about mid day. I quite like them. But I
didn't find any during the National TSN great Painted Snipe search at
Jerrabomberra W on that morning. (not of course did we find any Painted Snipe).
Don't be unkind about the
Greenfinches, Ian. Don't you recall the late Doug
Ross's defence of their
presence here - 'after all, we're all migrants'. b

Needless to say, no B-b Rail. Nor a sandpiper.
