I spent about an hour and a half this morning at Banyule Flats Reserve in Rosanna, (about 15km SE of Melbourne on the Yarra River), just having a general look around.  It was a cold, but clear and very pleasant morning.  Nothing too unusual, the best birds were Long-billed Corella, Pied and Grey Currawongs.  Black Swans were building a nest on the main lake, and I heard an undetermined crake/rail in the reeds).  All up, 50 species.
