Yesterday afternoon I saw a bird which at first I dismissed as a
blackbird walking around on our front lawn in Mount Waverley. However,
it seemed a bit big and with too long a tail and I realised it was a
Collared Sparrowhawk, which I confirmed with binoculars. It walked
around on the lawn for about 5 minutes, occasionally going into some
bushes, but not obviously hunting for anything. At one point it perched
on a rock right next to the footpath. I don't  know what it was up to.
