G'day Lawrie

None down this way for me yet but we don't get them in numbers every year.
2013-14 was a big year for them in the sw.  Might be a bit early still.  No
sign of Trillers, Songlarks (Rufous or Brown) either and the Reed-Warblers
have only just arrived.

I might need to get out more of course.
