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).

Ross's defence of their presence here - 'after all, we're all migrants'. b
