A bit late reporting, but my Saturday walk along the Molonglo river produced:
- looking fron the bike path across the river 4 Darters, 1 little pied 
cormorant, and 1 great cormorant on nests.  2 great cormorants with loudly 
begging young.  Also what I think were 5 juvenile darters flexing their wings, 
looking like they might be about to fly.

- Looking across from the forest side there were 4 darters on nests and 1 great 
cormorant with a young one giving it a particularly hard time begging.

On the return journey there were about 25 red-rumped parrots near the animal 
hospital, regulars around there but always nice to see.

Sunday at Narrabundah Hill fairly quiet, three small groups of migrating 
honeyeaters, about 20 in total with at least 1 white-naped, also a white-eared 
honeyeater, a pair of dusky woodswallows and a grey shrike-thrush.
