Hi Tom and everyone else,

Yeah I totally agree that it's good if people can specify at least a state with 
their location references.

Anyway - I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and assume that the state 
that has had recent rains is NSW and that the La Perouse mentioned at the 
bottom is in Sydney, so this is the Sydney Centennial Park.


Hi Eric,

You make reference to 'Centenial Park' would this be in Cairns, Sydney,
Which State has had recent rains?

Really helps if you can be a little more specific.

    A couple of interesting sightings in Centennial Park on Sunday 11 Mar
    between 8.15 and 10.30am.

    1 adult with 2 begging juvenile Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos in the
    pine groves on the Randwick Racecourse side - my first city sightings
    this season (last 4 years living locally they seem to have arrived in E
    Suburbs and inner city in March). Nearby flushed 2 Brown Quail - not
    sure if they are regulars in the park, this was my first sighting here.
    A Brown Goshawk was hunting around the main pond.

    Not sure if Greenfinch are still seen here? Looked in pine areas but
    none seen/heard. Waterbirds not in impressive numbers perhaps after
    recent rains in many parts of the State - only a few Hardhead and
    Chestnut Teal present, no Musk Duck seen. Flock of 28 Pelicans on main
    pond, 1 Intermediate Egret, 3 Black-fronted Dotterels.

    Large numbers of the resident tortoise species visible at the back of
    the larger ponds - 12 in one side pond - as water levels still low.

    2 Spangled Drongos seen at La Perouse later in the day.
