Hi all,

Had a very good morning at Cherry Lake in Altona today.  Started slow but as
I was about halfway around the far side of the lake a Black Falcon came
whooshing overhead, then straight across the lake to the stream inlet, where
a Little Eagle rose up to get into a stouche.  A little further down a
Black-shouldered Kite was cruising along some of the replantings.  Other
good species were Fan-tailed Cuckoo at the main carpark calling in the
middle of the day, and a pair of Zebra Finches hanging around near the
tennis courts.  I found a finch nest in a tree near where they were hanging
out, but it could have belonged to the Red-browed Firetails that were around
a bit further.
