Late report - Last Monday a pair of Rufous Night Herons in the trees around
Jerrabomberra Ck just above East Basin, plus a native water rat & some HUGE
Carp in the very shallow water on the Duntroon side.  (I'd hate to confront
a crocodile or a White Pointer whilst paddling my kayak!).  40+ Great
Cormorants alternately roosting  then flying off  in the same area.  I
counted 4 occupied Darter nests along Molonglo Reach opposite Duntroon (but
no occupied nest along Black Mtn Peninsula).  A Little Grass bird was
calling on the western side of Yarramundi Reach, and at least 6 Dusky
Woodswalloows along with what I'm pretty sure was a Pied Cormorant in the
same vicinity.  And a  Peregrine Falcon (or was it a Hobby?) in the Glenloch
Interchange area.

Friday a pair of Wedge-tailed Eagles being mobbed by Ravens above Erindale
Drive on the T'nong side of Long Gully Road intersection, and a Noisy Miner
keeping very close company (perched 30cms away on the same tree branch) with
a Aust. Kestrel at the green re-cycling area Mugga Lane.
