Dear all

The Singing Honeyeaters at Black Rock Life Saving Club are paired and may now be nesting.

A Yellow-faced HE at Long Hollow Reserve on 24/11 may be the same bird as recorded there on 3/10. They haven't bred in Bayside for 25 years.

Other records include Stubble Quail in a Beaumaris garden and Satin Flycatcher on 25/11. At Ricketts Point there have been sightings of Grey Plover - the 2nd Bayside record - and Stints, and a dying Arctic Jaeger was rescued from a rock platform.

Tawny Frogmouths and Black-faced Cuckoo-shrikes seem to be doing well. One or more Pied Currawongs are hanging around - never recorded before in October or November in Bayside..

The Musk Lorikeet return was earlier than in the last 5 years and, along with them, Purple-crowned and Little Lorikeets appeared.

Lastly a Cape Barren Goose was reported as on the Hampton Beach. Confirmation of this and any other interesting records are very welcome.
