While at Kellys at around noon today a raptor was perched in one of the dead trees and took off to harass a Lathams Snipe on the gravel island.  This looked like a close with the Snipe holding its lead!  I think the raptor was a Brown Goshawk.

​Back at home we were visited by a young cuckoo.  I think it was  Brush Cuckoo.

​It appeared to be getting attention from a female Rufous Whistler - a fair bit of squeaking back and forth - but I didn't actually see food transferred between the birds.  However: HANZAB does not include Rufous Whistler as a known host of Brush Cuckoo.
