Hi all,
Last night enjoyed some beautiful autumnal weather at Kamarooka State Park, some 30 km N of Bendigo.  This park is several thousand hectares of grassy woodland.  It's not all in terrific condition in that much of it is coppice regrowth, but there are some open grassy spots which make for good woodland birds.  The highlight was seeing three male Hooded Robins in one "binocular view" as well as a good view of a male Crested Bellbird, which seemed unaware of my presence and made a deep, quiet growling call (I record bellbirds often at my atlas site at Wellsford forest on the outskirts of Bendigo but have never seen them). 
Below is a list for 30 minutes birding (500m radius atlas count).  Could someone let me know if it comes out as a messy scramble, and if it does sorry to be nuisance.
