The Masked Lapwing that has been sitting on a nest in the roundabout at the intersection of Baldwin and William Slim Drives, Giralang is still there and survived having the roundabout mown today. It looks like the mower avoided the nest.

Also, nearby I heard a great deal of excitement from a pair of Kookaburras this afternoon. I eventually found them - one of them proudly carrying a dead rat in its beak.
