At least 5 there this morning.

Also a late posting - sorry, I've been away.  Last Sat morning the 
Great-crested Grebe was in the inlet east of the bridge just north of the 
Governor-General's front gate, ie at the beginning of Westbourne Woods.  I had 
great views.  Maybe it retreats in there when the rowers are out on the lake 
being yelled out by a megaphone-wielding male!

Went to the reserve off Rivett St Hacket this morning & saw 5 LL. Had no luck 
until about 8 when the group flew down from the slopes of Mt Ainslie. After 
doing a circuit around the reservior they settled in a tree just down from the 
powerlines...where I  happened to be standing. Two then alighted on bare 
branches of a nearby dead tree, thereby presenting excellent views. The birds 
were only vocal when flying. They departed for suburbia & presumably the 
flowering eucalypts in the area at about 8.40. So I left too!
