I was across the road from Kelly's Swamp this morning when a Whistling Kite invited a rabbit for lunch.  Unfortunately, at least from the leporidine perspective, it was as, rather than for, main course. 

Low numbers of waterfowl on the sewage ponds, and most of those present were sheltering under southern banks.  No Pink-eared or Blue-billed ducks were evident.

The water level in Kelly's was quite high so few spots for ducks to haul out and those that were present took exception to, and their leave from, a passing immature Wedge-tailed Eagle.  Perhaps they sensed another invitation in the offing?   Heading towards Kingston and there was still a good crop of blossom on the eucalypts just over the wooden bridge.  This was being well attended by New Holland, White-plumed and Yellow-faced Honeyeaters and Red Wattlebirds.
