Greetings all: Early this morning in my Weston garden I had an amazing selection of King Parrots, Gang-gangs and a Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo (in a Silver Banksia), two Satin Bowerbirds and a Willy Wagtail (have not had one of these here for at least a year), and a large mixed flock of various small birds, together with the resident pair of White-browed Scrub-wrens.  The Eastern Spinebills are still around, but usually leave for the mountains at the end of August - then I know its spring!
Unfortunately, there was also a Spotted Turtle Dove on the electricity wires and I saw another one on my morning walk - I had not seen these around this area for some time.
