Most unusual bird seen in the 49 species recorded at today's very windy BOCA survey of Pinkerton Forest and Bush's Paddock (west of Melbourne) was a Budgerigar. Given the recent sighting of a small number near this location by Richard Nowotny, and the distance from the nearest habitation, this seems likely to be a wild bird?
Other interesting sightings were a White-winged Triller, small numbers of Zebra Finches and Diamond Firetails, a Pacific Heron and a nesting Brown Goshawk.
