Hello all,

Any ideas about blackbird control? The ones around here have expanded their
range and number noticeably over the past five years and are too wary for
my air-gun. They have recently moved into the local forest, thanks to the
invasion of cape broom I would venture. By the way, the local Turdus now
seem to mimic the softest calls of pied currawongs.

A pair of buff-banded rails have moved in among rank blackberries, rushes
and fog grass by a roadside dam here in Daylesford. A first in my memory. 
Sacred kingfishers have returned for the third year in succession.
