At Callum Brae this afternoon there was little about to begin with. The only excitement was a possible Masked Woodswallow glimpsed at a very great distance. 

However where the main track crosses the creek that flows down towards the eastern boundary of the reserve we came across a little flurry of migrants: a White-winged Triller, an Olive-backed Oriole, a Rufous Songlark and Dusky Woodswallows.

Earlier at Mugga Lane Dump we took a wrong turn and instead of exiting we headed south towards the active dump. Before we realised our mistake and turned around we saw 20-30 Fairy Martins. The area they were in had various ponds and probably had suitable culverts &c for nesting. Hope this is a colony that will breed.
