7th Nov. Aust. Magpie-lark sitting in nest in the middle of Cairns City
Place whilst its mate spent all its time chasing off Common Mynas. Quite a
good spot for a nest as it is built over an outdoor cafe, loots of goodies
to scavenge + a grassed area next to it.

The week ending the 31st Oct. saw up to 53 Marsh Sandpipers at the Cairns
Airport, by 3rd Nov. there was only four..
