Hi all,

On our place we have two dams surrounded by thick reeds (some cumbungi and a 
lot of bamboo grass I think).  When we moved here in Feb 2002 Reed Warblers 
were permanent and noisy residents and they stayed until the dams dried out 
late in 2002.  Although the dams had some water again from about March and were 
full from May I did not hear or see them again until last week when they were 
very noisy & fairly visible - I counted at least 4.  Was pleased but not 
surprised however we were quite surprised when one spent much of yesterday 
calling frm the thick foliage of two paperbarks the house garden, about 150m 
from the dams.

Our first record of a Sacred Kingfisher yesterday and of a Little Eagle today 
brought our tally up to 112.
