I've never seen drongo at BP before yesterday either.

It was sitting in the tall trees near where the path crosses the road from
the brickpit side over to the path to the hide (not far from the Bridge
across to the archery park).

It was sitting quite low and stayed there for about 20 seconds, giving me
excellent views.

Now if I can just get onto little bittern...

Had another nice morning at Bicentennial Park yesterday, seeing 41 species
in a little over an hour.

Highlights were spangled drongo (my first in BP), two black-shouldered
kite hovering above the bird hide, great egret and white faced heron both in
very nice plumage, red-rumped parrot in the usual spot near Lake Belvedere
and very good views of red-browed finch. There were also many black faced
cuckoo-shrike around, with flocks of up to 20 birds moving about.

The pond in front of the hide is quite dry and all of the birds have
retreated to the distant end. Conversely, the levels seem up in Lake
