Hi all

Finally managed to get a couple of bird trips in over Easter - just half day 
rampages around local hotspots.

At the You Yangs we were thwarted by early closure of the Great Circle Drive 
(do they often close it before 4pm?) so saw nothing much in the park itself.  
We were looking for Crested Shrike-Tits for my Dad.

We went along Sandy Creek Road instead, and found several parties of Diamond 
Firetail  between the You Yangs and Granite Rd - probably about 50-60 birds in 
all.  There were a few Red-broweds in there as well.  About 200m along Granite 
Road we found a group of about 40 Zebra Finches (a state tick for me).

Other nice birds along Sandy Creek Road were Crested-Shrike Tit, a group of 
about 6 Flame Robins, including a couple of coloured males, and a single 
Peregrine Falcon.  No sign of Black falcon unfortunately.
