Fri 21White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike, Tawy Grassbird, White-throated Gerygone
McCoy Park,Toongabbie
Had a quick look at this reserve during my lunch break and saw a light morph White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike (I also saw one last year not too far away from here but alongside the Industrial estate off Powers Rd in Seven Hills a kilometre or so away), a Tawny Grassbird (saw one also at this reserve last year), a White-throated Gerygone (calling a few times), Figbird amongst a few other birds. Amazing what you can find in or close to Industrial estates!

Thu 20Wood Sandpiper
Normanton: small abandoned dam at end of Woodward St. in the township
1. This adult bird in non-breeding plumage has been present at the abandoned dam at the end of Woodward St. in the township for the last 3 days. Although the area is plagued by children swimming, quad bikes etc generally after school or on weekends, it seems to have adapted well to being a "town bird" thus far. Consistently feeding in a tight trio with a Greenshank and a Marsh Sandpiper. This is the first record on E-Bird for the south-eastern Gulf region and probably simply reflects the area being comparatively under-surveyed.

Crimson Rosella, Laughing Kookaburra
Ricketts Pt, Beaumaris
Unable to relocate the male Leaden Flycatcher seen at this site earlier in the week, nor the female Satin Flycatcher that was reported by local birders during the week. But there was an adult Crimson Rosella which seems an unusual time of year for Bayside as well as a Kookaburra.

Sacred Kingfisher
Merri Creek Trail, Fitzroy North to Coburg
Nice to see a kingfisher back behind CERES this year - I haven't spotted them there for a few years. Hopefully there's a breeding pair again, although I only managed to spot one.

Wed 19Plumed Whistling-duck
Lake Cooper--North End
6 seen in grass near waters edge. I was walking along the trail that skirts the north-east side of the lake for about 1km . There were 2 Singing Honeyeaters and 2 Rufous Songlarks along the trail too. eBird checklist

Sacred Kingfisher, Rufous Whistler
Royal Park --Trin Warren Tam-boore
I stopped off at Trin Warren Tam-boore on my way home from work at about 6pm hoping to see the Rainbow bee-eater and Rufous Songlark reported there on Sunday. No luck (unsurprisingly), but I did see a Sacred Kingfisher flying from tree to tree in the skink habitat (judging by the plumage I suspect it was an adult male) and, down by the pond, a juvenile Rufous Whistler which is the first I've seen in that location. (The last eBird record for a Rufous Whistler there was in 2014.)
