Mon 12Square-tailed Kite
A Square-tailed Kite seen back on its nest in Bellbowrie for the first time this season, much later than last year. The birds on Mt Coot-tha hadn't returned to their nest as of a couple of weeks ago - perhaps they have returned in the last week or so also?

Slender-billed Thornbill
Port Wakefield
4 in samphire just west of town. Generally not easy to find. Maybe this subspecies could be split back to the old "Samphire Thornbill".

Mon 12highlightTawny Grassbird
Liverpool Road Retarding Basin
Large scale Council work at reserve today, I though may have driven bird off but at 5pm it was still clearly visible at the same place as other reports. For me recognisable from a Reed Warbler by its larger size, slower movement, and less flighty. I have poor hearing but I thought I may have heard a second bird. Also nearby Buff Banded Rail
