Australian Hobby over Canberra Stadium on Friday night at the Rugby. I am pretty sure, and identifiable from the call.  One accompanied by a small flock of pigeons at dusk, then two calling loudly (over the cheering) after dark.  As some will know, this has been reported in other seasons at Canberra Stadium (Brumbies seasons that is).   


Small flock of Grey Fantails (lots of immatures) in my garden in Torrens (relishing the bird bath), and a single dependent Eastern Spinebill being fed by a parent.  They breed somewhere in our garden or neighbour’s every year, but I have never found the nest.
