Sun 26Pied Butcherbird, Yellow-tufted Honeyeater
Shoplands Road, Annangrove
Single adult Pied Butcherbird observed mid-afternoon, first record of the species since 2002. Neither was it recorded at the site in the early 1970's when Shoplands Road was a Sydney birdwatchers' hotspot. Two Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters are only the second sighting here since the colony disappeared after a prescribed burn in the gully in 2010. Other record was a single bird in Jan 2018.

Sun 26Osprey
laverton Creek mouth, Altona
Saw twice - a bird left Truganini Park woodlands about 7.30AM, perched on a bush at beach for a while then flew towards Pt Cook; later flew up Laverton Ck estuary about 9.30AM, putting up everything, then continued southwards. Excellent view at 20m as flew slowly past. Camera in car, of course. eBird checklist

Female specimen was alone, being harried by another bird's danger call - possibly a miner. It was chirping rather quietly. See image.

Wed 22Swift Parrot
290 Gooch Road Stratford Vic 3862
I saw and photographed this unusual bird during my 20 minute bird count at my property, for birdlife australia backyard bird count. I could not identify it, so posted it to birdlife east gippsland for assistance and was advised by Dan Ashdown it was a juvenile Swift Parrot. The bird is similar in size to a Musk Lorikeet.
