Wed 5Azure Kingfisher
Cotter River, 100m downstream from the dam
Saw a single Azure Kingfisher flying up & down the Cotter River this morning. Unsure how common/uncommon they are in the ACT but I've certainly never seen one!

Mon 3Square-tailed Kite
Thornlands Rd area, Thornlands
This Square-tailed Kite has been a regular in recent years, soaring over houses less than 1km from Moreton Bay. As you can see from the photo, the bird is watching me as I am photographing it from my driveway.

3 birds, the first Stubble Quails I have seen in this general area since May 2015. this species was once {1970's } the most common quail in this area. Nowdays the Brown Quail is abundant in the area, when once it was not all that common.

Wed 5highlightGrey Goshawk
Disney Street, Bittern
Single adult Grey Goshawk seen this morning in the garden for 30mins. Flew off southwards towards Coolart Wetlands (4km away) at 920am. My first on the Mornington Peninsula. To note, subsequent to this record, it appears that the same bird was seen a few kms away two days prior to the sighting on 5th May.

Tue 4megamegaSpangled Drongo
Seen briefly on powerlines this afternoon at the height of a cold, wet and windy antarctic blast. Pursued down the street in wet weather gear with Canon in hand to gain some distant photographs. Good enough for positive ID purposes. Heard the bird calling the previous afternoon before both of us observed it today. No further sightings within the Marlo township. This observation follows on from recent report from Wuk Wuk north of Bairnsdale
