Whilst doing our regular Hooded Plover count this morning in the Point
Nepean section of the Mornington Peninsula Nat. Park.(Vic) we witnessed
a post breeding flocking of Red Wattlebirds. There were I estimate about
a thousand birds, certainly the greatest number I have ever seen. A
Peregrine Falcon was sitting in a low bush watching the passing parade
and no doubt thinking about the next meal.

We have 4 fledged "Hoodie" juveniles so far this season along our
stretch and possibly 8 or 9 for the whole park so a reasonably
successful breeding year.
