Bird of highest note: a probable Black-breasted Buzzard seen west of Walkamin 
this late morning. I was driving a bus and could not stop. Large raptor with 
upswept wings seen in silhouette against bright cloud so no colour detail/

Black Falcon in paddock where the Banded Lapwing was, opposite southern end of 
Mark’s Lane; seen late morning.

Red-backed Kingfisher on the Kennedy Highway just out of Atherton, southern 
side, this early morning not there at midday.

Blue-winged Kookaburra on street light near strawberry farm, Marks Lane, 
Gillies H’way intersection, seen yesterday early afternoon.

Two Freckled duck along with the thousand of Plumed W-duck, hundreds of Magpie 
Geese, a dozen plus each Grey Teal and Pacific Blacks and a few Hardheads and 
Pink-ears at Hasties Swamp.

There are the best numbers of Brown Falcons for some time, including some very 
light birds.
