G'day all

On the northern outskirts of Hamilton (sw Victoria) is an area called the
Parklands - some nice birds turn up from time to time.  One of the old, now
disused water supply reservoirs is in the parklands and there is a large
brick overflow tunnel thing in the middle with a wooden platform over it.
On Saturday there were three pairs of Silver Gulls nesting on it - two
incubating and one pair with a couple of small grey chicks.

How unusual is it to find Silver Gulls nesting in inland Victoria?  I
assumed they all bred on coastal islands.
