John, the GST has been an increasing autumn/winter visitor to my local patch of NW Chapman/Cooleman Ridge for the past 5 years or so, and has been calling in my garden for the past two weeks.  The eBird map shows records from around 40 Canberra urban/peri-urban locations over the past month, mainly in an arc from the SW to the SE, and interestingly only a couple in the S.

There was a Black Kite circling the Mt Davidson trig point (next hill along from Red Hill) around 10.30am this morning.
Also of interest was a Grey Shrike Thrush west of the trig point down the hill towards Garran. In my observation the inner south is a GST free zone (we’ve never had one at our place in Hughes in 23 years, and i’ve seen or heard one one in Hughes/Garran/Curtin  that I can remember).
