I also watched the Black falcon hunting off the power lines for a while around 3.30 after having earlier seen it fly from the south up over the sewage ponds then across the main Kellys pond, as in Michael's report.

Also, three Yellow-tailed black-cockatoos flying through almost silently; a Black-shouldered kite working the grass near the office; a Little eagle far away to the south; at least 8 Freckled duck, one Pink-eared and a Pelican west of the bridge, between the two hides there (best seen from the north side of the creek); and a couple of Shovellers on the main pond. Lots of wrens, scrubwrens and Red-browed finches around.

Also, as I was leaving at about 3.45, I checked Bittern hide again, thinking there might be something interesting to see there now that all the workers had left for the day, and I disturbed two people who'd been having sex there. Not what I'd hoped for.

Another (same) Black Falcon at JW flew over Kellys Swamp heading to the starling roost on the powerlines in the middle of the cattle paddock. Same time of day as well, approx 2pm. Also YTB Cockatoos feeding in wattles by car park.
