Amongst the usual Rufous Whistlers, Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, Grey Fantails et al at Tharwa Sandwash this morning were also a pair of Rainbow Bee-eaters and two (at least) European Goldfinches. Sadly, no Platypus (or Hooded Robin) but I live in hope each time I go there now.
Later, at Jerrabomberra Wetlands (Kellys Swamp), 4 Royal Spoonbills and, at the water's edge in front of Bittern Hide, a Little Grassbird. Further out from the hide a solitary Baillon's Crake was giving prolonged views and a Sacred Kingfisher appeared briefly.
With a bit of luck the Crake will hang around long enough so that whoever is covering the Wetlands as part of the Blitz might be able to spot it on the weekend.
