Thanks for the tip about the Great Crested Grebe, still there this afternoon.

Never seen so many Crakes and Rails out in the open from Cygnus Hide – two Buff-banded Rails, and at least six Australian Spotted Crakes J

Morning all,

I have just had a phone call from one of my former work colleagues to
say that he and his wife have just seen 4, and possibly 6, Cockatiel
this morning at 0716 at Kellys Swamp. It is unusual to get two Cockatiel
locally and normally I would consider them as aviary escapees but four
(or six) sound more like wild birds. I will get a photo of one of the
birds shortly from them and will pass this record on to the COG Rarities
Committee for consideration.
