This warm autumn weather in Vic. is great for birding, but it is also great for reptiles. This morning I had close encounters with two tiger snakes on the Flooding Creek track next to the Sale Common. These fellows like to lie in the grass at the edge of tracks where it is sunny and close to cover, and it is very easy to walk on to them while sneaking along looking for birds up in the trees. This happened to me when I was concentrating on a flock of Brown-headed Honeyeaters, I didn't think I was still capable of moving so quickly. Also enjoying the beautiful day in this southern clime were a pair of Sacred Kingfishers and two O B Orioles. Duncan Fraser, Maffra, Vic.
