Published sightings for the week ending 24 Jul 2011.

Sun 24 Jul Black-shouldered Kite, Little Grassbird Fyshwick Sewage Treatment Plant
A Black-shouldered Kite (1) and Little Grassbird observed this morning. Also the number of Hardhead (7) is increasing and Black-fronted Dotterel (6) decreasing from last week as the water levels vary and mud flats are either exposed or flooded.

Fri 22 Jul Rose Robin Australian National Botanic Gardens
One male Rose Robin near Section 17 of the gardens. Tried to get a better picture but an Eastern Yellow Robin decided it was more photogenic and chased the Rose Robin off.
