Took advantage of the lovely spring weather (though some rain would be nice) and did a bit of birdwatching around Mildura.

Went out to the farmer's market at Inland Botanical Gardens (Buronga) yesterday. No lorikeets this time, but a White-fronted Honeyeater was calling in the amongst the Singing Honeyeaters.

Walking around town yesterday came across at least 2 pairs of Musk Lorikeets still hanging about in planted street trees (Lemon-scented Gum and some sort of WA eucalypt).

Headed down to Hattah Kulkyne this morning. Highlights were great views of a male Mallee Emu-wren and poorer views of Striated Grasswrens at the Nowingi Track, a pair of Major Mitchells with White Cockatoos near Lake Mornpoul, and the usual Regent Parrots at Hattah and Mornpoul Lakes. No Spotted Bowerbirds present. There were Woodswallows very high at the Nowingi Track, the only definite was a female White-browed (all the rest were too high). Otherwise it was very quiet there with the only other species recorded were Yellow-plumed Honeyeater, Crested Bellbird, Grey Shrike-thrush and Galah.
