G'day all

I visited lake Linlithgow and other nearby lakes/swamps on Saturday (20km
east of Hamilton, Vic).  Linlithgow probably only half full and few birds. 
Lake Kennedy completely dry.  Krause's Swamp has plenty of water and at
this time of year usually has a few brolgas.  This time I counted 32 and
another three flying overhead.  My previous highest count was 5.  From a
distance I suspect many of the birds were last spring's young.

We really need a good wet year this year.
