Hi all
Probably of interest only to Brisbane southside birders...and not too
exciting for all that!

Checked out Minnippi Parklands on Friday morning - lake pretty full,
large swathes of reed bed cut out around electricity plyons and the
undergound gas line. Usual species - highlight, a flock of
White-breasted Wood-Swallows numbering 52 'arrived' to sit on the high
voltage wires and feed over the lake.
Went to M C Trotter bushland, bordering on the Leslie Harrison Dam, on
Sunday morning - water level very high, bird levels quite low -
virtually nothing on the dam except a few Black Ducks and 1 (!) Black
Swan. Bush birds - nice to see the E Spinebills, Grey Fantails and
Yellow-faced Honeyeaters have come back again for another winter.
Highlight - 3 Bee Eaters feeding energetically. MIGHT be a little late,
but am not gonna argue with anyone who has seen them later!!

See you out there, 
  Colin Reid
So many birds, so little time......
