Wed 13 Mar Bush-hen Humbles Creek
Sitting down watching finches when one sauntered out about a meter away, not sure who got a bigger shock. It fled back into the scrub where it went through its full suite of calls. Flushed when I stood up. Another seen on the 14th crossing the Victoria Highway 70km east of Timber Creek.
