Birdline Victoria Update for the week ending 16/4/01

During an extremely busy week with not nearly enough time for birding, some not so rare, as unusual and interesting birds have been reported to Birdline.

I hope everyone had a safe Easter and return with lots of great bird sightings for Birdline.
