G'day all

Rob Farnes, Rob Drummond and I went birding in the Portland area on Thursday. We ventured to the Mt. Clay forest, the Surrey River mouth at Narrawong, the new Portland Sewage Ponds and the Cobboboonee State Forest. Highlights were a Hooded Plover on the beach at Narrawong, a Buff-banded Rail and a Red-kneed Dotterel at the sewage ponds, several Rufous Fantails and a Rose Robin in the Cobboboonee.

The lowlight was missing out on the chance for King Quail because I bumped into another car in the forest. Result - one probably written off Falcon and a bruised Farnes. We were very lucky and it just goes to show you that these things can happen even in the most unlikely places and we should all always be alert to the possibility.

Happy New Year everyone
