Many thanks to all who shared their knowledge of Singing Honeyeater locales at West Belconnen Ponds.  It was succesfully ticked after a 10 minute search, and it then mucked around in the large concrete rubbish filter/silt trap ay the North end of the Pond for a further 10 minutes (mainly fighting with House Sparrows and a Willie Wagtail) before disappearing into a pine tree.

No sign of the Black Honeyeater.

I went to Fushwick (sic) STP late this morning and found a considerable number of workmen about the place but, perhaps as a consequence of that, a distinct lack of Avocets.  Possibly they were in Rusk Pond 1 but I could find no approved way of getting a look in there.  Have they turned up anywhere else?

Another briefish opportunity to boost my ACT list occurs tomorrow afternoon and I was contemplating taking myself to West Belconnen for Honeyeater viewing.  Are the Singing and/or Black HE still there?  As I will be somewhat time limited I would like to start at the most likely end of the the Pond: should I go to the North or South?
