Now - a few interesting bird records:

A Nankeen Night Heron flying along the Moonee Ponds Creek at Willowbrook
Reserve, Attwood, (near Melbourne Airport) in broad daylight last Friday (27th

Tree Sparrows in the Airport Motel (Attwood, Melbourne) grounds.  I rarely see
Tree Sparrows so it was interesting to me at least.

A Ringneck flew up from the side of the road today when I was riding to work.
It was green-headed so could have been one of our mallee birds that wandered
down south but I suppose it was an escaped pet.

A friend saw some Yellow-plumed Honeyeaters in the Claude Austin Reserve (near
Rocklands Reservoir spillway on the western side of the Grampians) on the
weekend.  Another species that belongs further north.
