Between 1 and 5 pm.

Swift parrots flew overhead heading north, 5 good
sized convoys? why convoys? well they had a pelican
escort at a safe distance either side, really looked
quite good as they flew up from HMS Cerebus in convoy

Willie wagtails seen around town again.
The Weebil family successfully raised 2 this year.
Rainbow Lorikeet seem to be of the same numbers.
Eastern Rosella's back in town after their autumn
Southern break.
Galah numbers are up this year.
Magpie Lark's also seem up in number this year.
Australian Raven numbers seem to be up slightly.
Western Port bay fish stocks appear to be okay? so
most of the local seabirds are present and in good
numbers, Pacific Gull numbers seem to markedly up.
Bell bird family's now at both caravan parks whereas
last year and previously only at Marina view cp.
Noisy Miner numbers appear to be down?
Red Wattlebird pair back in bushes alongside Hastings
Common Myna numbers up.
Hope Mr. & Mrs. Song Thrush stay? such a good "sip"
makes you want some tea.

Whilst on the subject of close proximity nests I have
seen honeyeaters and tree sparrows nesting one above
the other, less then a foot apart, tree sparrows on
