Also at Banyule (05/01/01) - nesting White Winged Triller, Bronzewing (always 
fun to see on the city), Little Grassbird, Galah, Grey Thrush, and Spotless in 
the rushes on the far side. The walk to Banyule was also an opportunity to test 
drive my new Nikon 10x40 HP - beautiful. Highly recommended.

Also this must be the year for Latham's - at a wetland near Drysdale (27/12/00) 
on the Bellarine Pen, Vic, I counted at least 30.
