I started off at the Kingston end of Jerrambombera Wetlands hoping to add a Spangled Drongo to my ACT list but failed.  There were certainly a lot of Red Wattlebirds evident but no drongos with them today.

Passing by Norgrove Park it was ver pleasing to see 3 very small Dusky Moorhen chicks swimming with their parents.  Although I have never been to this park without encountering lawn mowers (what sort of fertiliser do they use there?) the racket from them and the surrounding construction activity doesn't seem to upset the birds.

A Pied Cormorant was visible in the usual island off the Carillion.

Finally, an Eastern Koel was heard calling from the viciinity of the National Museum at around 1pm.
