Sun 24Grey Currawong (Race melanoptera)
1 landed on the lawn of my suburban garden this morning! Flew into trees before i could grab the phone. Nearest suitable habitat 3.5km away on the Hills Face. Heard it calling from neighbouring gardens next morning. Have had them here occasionally before but usually later in the autumn - probable dispersal. eBird checklist

A good number of 24 Pink-eared Ducks amongst 150 waterfowl at the racecourse pond. The rest were mostly Grey Teal and Pacific Blacks, a dozen Hardhead and 4 Wood Ducks. Also 6 Hoary-headed and 2 Australasian Grebes. This pond is lined with plastic so food is limited, and normally only a few birds here.
