Hi! I noticed a pair of Masked lapwings nesting on the roundabout next to Copeland college between Callwell, Isabella Plains and Bonython. They often seem to nest on roundabouts don't they? Good to see birds using the unique number of roundabouts in Canberra to good use though!

A pair of Masked Lapwings appears to have started nesting this

Reg Saunders Way, Russell.

The female has been sitting in the same place for several days,
presumably on eggs.  Its mate swooped a bloke attempting to walk
across the area this afternoon; he wisely decided that going
around the path was a better option.
