Hi All,
Yesterday afternoon (Sat 21 June 2008) with Ann and Bruce McGregor, I visited 
Merri Creek path in Quarries Park in the vicinity of Ramsden St. Conditions 
were not ideal for birdwatching as it was very overcast and reasonably windy. 
While no particularly rare birds were seen, there was a delightful array of 
native birds, for a site only about 5km from Melbourne GPO and popular with dog 
walkers, joggers and cyclists.
It was also pleasing to find, that the only feral birds on the actual site was 
Blackbirds. Overhead or nearby we saw Feral/Rock Pigeons, Starling and 

Birds seen at the site were

Yellow Thornbill
    feeding in Eucs., wattles and Allocasuarinas with
Yellow-rumped Thornbill
Brown Thornbill
Eastern Spinebill
Red Wattlebird
Little Wattlebird
Magpie Lark
Rainbow Lorikeet
Red-rumped Parrot
Welcome Swallow
Superb Blue Wren
White-browed Scrubwren
Noisy Miner
Grey Shrike-thrush
Golden Whistler (female)
Red-browed Firetail/Finch

in creek
Chestnut Teal
Dusky Moorhen
