Hi all,
Nice to be back on birding-aus after 12 months travelling since selling our house. Currently house-sitting back in Sunraysia, at Dareton.
Not sure if anyone reported these sightings to birding-aus at the time so I do so now:
1 Grey Goshawk - White Phase.  Was seen in Mildura area by many individuals over a six-week period. Last reported on 7/4/01.
Scarlet-chested Parrot.  Male clearly seen and studied by two observers, from 10 metres, in Mallee about half km south of Meridian Lakes, and later a brief view of a female.
Ground Cuckoo-Shrike.  Group of 4 seen by 3 observers in old Gol Gol Tip area on 2/4/01.
Freckled Duck.  Group of approximately 35 first seen on Mildura Sewerage ponds on 14/4/01 and still there on 1/5/01.
Barry and Roberta McLean
PO Box 979, Swan Hill, Vic 3585.

We house-sit.
