Mon 5Bassian Thrush
Goodenia Rainforest Walk, near Pambula
Several (~6) Bassian Thrush seen flying conspicuously around in the forest and walking quite near the path. Though records of birds for the far south coast are thinly spread in general, I wouldn't assume this is a rare species here. However, the number of Thrush and their lack of secrecy was very surprising. (Also, either a Scarlet Honeyeater or Mistletoebird seen from directly below - flew away before I could clearly ID between the two small red birds, but either way a notable extra sighting.)

Liverpool Road Retarding Basin
A single bird was seen along the northern end of the fenced off swamp (at 351671.00 m E, 5810169.00 m S) that backs onto retarding basin. Bird was very shy and predominately kept to the undergrowth, calling very intermittently and occasionally taking flight, travelling no further then 20m before dropping back down into cover. Eventually the bird flushed to a patch of Phragmites australis on the south-western side of the swamp (at 351627.00 m E, 5810116.00 m S), were it called strongly over a 10 minute period eBird checklist
