Early today I pulled in to the Fyshwick sewage ponds to try to sneak a peek at the Grey Goshawk, but no joy there.
I did, however, see a Brown Goshawk quartering the area where bunnies burrow on borrowed time as bait layers bring about their banishment.
A movement along the top of the eastern boundary fence (about 60m from where I stood) caught my attention. Through the binos I made out a Spotted Harrier perching on the fence and being harassed by a pair of Australian Ravens. The harrier rose a metre or so and dropped back to the fence a couple of times before flying off towards the turf fields. The ravens followed for 50m before returning to the eau de Cologne compound.
