A short report of a brief visit to Linton on the Glenelg Highway, about 35 
km sw of Ballarat in western Victoria.

Just outside Linton township is the Bird Observers Club - Clarkesdale 
Sanctuary, a very worthwhile spot to visit for woodland birds in this part 
of Victoria.  The area is very dry of course and although we didn't make 
an effort to survey the Linton Flora and Fauna Reserve (se of Linton), a 
number of species were recorded, often by call...

Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo - at least 300 (estimated 350) birds in 
flight. A marvellous sight of a loose flock moving overhead.
Long-billed Corella
Sulphur-crested Cockatoo
Crescent Honeyeater - rarely recorded in this part of Victoria (no records 
in the Atlas of Victorian Wildlife)
Scarlet Robin
Eastern Yellow Robin
Grey Shrike-Thrush
Golden Whistler
Wedge-tailed Eagle (2) - in courtship flight
Welcome Swallow
New Holland Honeyeater
White-throated Treecreeper
Brown Thornbill
White-browed Scrubwren
Superb Fairy-wren
