This morning a White-necked Heron, (possibly the same one - they are not common around here) was at the pond along Jarramlee Road and there was a Brown Falcon sitting on the wires down near the disused Sewerage Pumping Station further down Ginninderra Creek. A welcome (sorry about that!) sight were some Welcome Swallows near the same pond - first seen here for some weeks.

From the slightly unusual to the apparently displaced. For the first time in over 4 years there was a Silver Gull at one of these tiny suburban ponds yesterday - on Jarramlee Pond, which is in Dunlop below Archdall and Pomeroy Streets. Although common around the bigger lakes, I was not aware that they came to smaller bodies of water - is it unusual or just that none had found the pond before? Incidentally it had gone by this morning.
