I was most surprised, on having a preliminary look at a job site late this morning immediately alongside the Belc Town Cenre, when the first bird I saw was a DFtail. Lots more too, including many imm Dusky Woodswallows, despite being middle of the day. This is a totally 'artificial' site, very weedy understorey and plantations - Blue Gums, Melaleucas etc. It's across Beissel St from the lake, opposite the water police wharf. Currently fenced, it's between Beissel St and Luxton St. If anyone's done any birding there and has some records, I'd be glad to hear from you (off line).
