Dear All,
Interesting times around Goulburn district after all the water that fell.  On Tuesday, 24th April, second sighting of a White-Bellied Sea-Eagle over SaltPetre - near Wakefield Park Raceway - this time, a mature bird, being pursued by a Magpie Lark.
For the past few weeks, small flocks of Darters have been observed flying across the Cullundean Range from the South-East - Canberra - to the North-West towards Goulburn, not a common occurrence.  Yesterday evening - 5:15 - a mature male Darter, alone, was on the flats near the Mulwaree Ponds (Komungla) against the fence of a house that is quite close to the road.  At first, he was jumping around, and I thought he was in trouble, so pulled up to observe.  He clumsily, with his large wings close to the fence, finally was able to gain enough height to cruise off over the low paddocks to the Ponds.  No other Darter observed anywhere nearby.
Grey Butcherbird continues to put the frighteners into all the little ones daily at Currawang.  On Thursday, WTE pair over SaltPetre and a pair over The Glen (just East of Rowes Lagoon).
