Yesterday, four birdchatters journeyed south of Sydney to meet a Canberra
birdchatter Mandy Salmon who has Superb Parrots visiting her Murrumbateman
property. We had stunning views of about 10 birds. They were feeding on the
driveway and perching in the trees beside. They a so beautiful their colours
seem false.

We had lunch by Lake George coming home where a Little Eagle was being
bombed by Magpies. There was a small flock of Australian Shelduck by the
edge but no ducks were seen on the lake. In front of the picnic area there
is a large reed bed. A few Australian Reed Warblers were singing away but
not for long. The new four lane highway is heading straight for it.
