G'day Mark

My interest in Ravens is not just GBS sites (and that location in Crace is very close to a previous site)  but is more about where the 'extra breeders' in the GBS after the bushfires came from and where they have subsequently gone to.  So your post is interesting in that regard as well as a general sign of the times.

Thinking of the seasonal business, your mention of Masked Lapwings getting aggresive caused me to remember a pair being extremely vocal in beautiful downtown Queanbeyan this arvo.  They didn't swoop anyone that I saw, but from their noise and direction of flight those playing soccer in the park alongside the Queanbeyan River may have got a wake-up!

Hi all,


Not a record from a GBS site so no use to Martin and his analysis but at about 12 noon today an Australian Raven flew over Bellenden Street, Crace, by Radio Station 2CC/FM106 carrying a stick to a nest that has been used for at least three previous years. Next thing you know the Masked Lapwings and Australian Magpies will be getting aggressive again  ..........!!
