Well, even I have to concede that autumn, that forebearer of the nightmare
that haunts all northerners in Melbourne  - winter, is here.

On my usual lunch-time stroll through Fitzroy Gardens, in East Melbourne I
heard a familiar old friend.  On inspection I found two Rufous Fantails in
the "rainforest' gully along with two Grey Fantails.  Neither were present
yesterday.  These birds are obviously gearing up for their (rather
sensible) migration north.  Also building up in numbers over the past
couple of weeks are Magpie-larks.

Alas, autumn is here.  Looking forward the forecast last burst of summer on
the weekend. (stop gloating Michael Todd!).
