Hi Michael and Birding Ausers,

Enjoyed lunch at Ricketts Point today with the intention of looking for the White-fronted Terns reported there over the last couple of weeks.  I didn't see them, but did see five Scaly-breasted Lorikeets in Banksia trees on the foreshore.  I knew that there were feral populations on the Peninsula, but I thought that they were further down, in Mt Eliza, and was surprised to see them here.

Is this usual?
