G,day birders,

Yesterday morning, a small group of birders (mostly Friends of Braeside
Park) were led by Bob Berry on an excellent walk through the heathy
woodland section of Braeside Park (Melbourne's south-eastern Suburbs).  

Thanks to Bob for his well-led guided tour, and impressing me on my first
visit to the park.  Living just minutes away, it is a place where I can
duck into for a quick birding session from time to time.

obtained, as follows:
