Dear all

The Noisy Friarbird was still in north Beaumaris on 2nd November, after 16 
days, but now feeding on red Callistemons rather than Mahogany Gums. 

Are there any other November records for this species in Melbourne ?  This 
could be an unusual November as yesterday there was a Tree Martin at 
Elsternwick Park and today Straw-necked Ibis were flying over my home in 

On 1st November there was a Little Egret at Ricketts Point, photographed by 
myself and - much better - by Ian Parsons. Also seven Royal Spoonbills flew in, 
a record number for Bayside.
