On the weekend I visited Woodlands near the Melbourne
airport. I hadn't visited for a while so was surprised
to see burnt areas. Burnt grass and lower tree trunks
on the way to the Weeroona Cemetery and 'back paddock'

Does anyone know if a fire recently went through the
area or if it was a 'controlled' burn? (forgive me, I
am not sure what a controlled burn area looks like).

I found the birding rather quiet but was delighted to
see a pair of Tawny Frogmouths and got a couple of
shots I am really happy with:
