Fri 14highlightSouth Island Pied Oystercatcher
Stockton Beach (Worimi Conservation Lands)
The well-documented "1N" was found by Ann Lindsey during a monthly survey of the Worimi Conservation Lands this morning, subsequently found by me and a few other observers. The bird was initially found by Ann about 2km south of the 4wd beach access at Birubi Point, and then relocated at approximately the same location this afternoon (perhaps slightly closer to Birubi). Survey details, but not exact location are at http://birdata.birdlife.org.au/survey?id=2935405&h=14c37d84 (Bird present at -32.796075,152.004147 Saturday morning [per M. Kearns])

Sat 8Gang gang cockatoo
Royal Park, Parkville
Entering Royal Park on my bike, i was arrested by the unmistakeable creaky gate call of gang gang cockatoos, near the roundabout just up from the zoo towards Royal Parade at the eastern edge of the park. The gum trees around the roundabout and over towards the golf course were alive with gang gangs, noisily hopping about and swooping over my head from tree to tree. Chatting to a lady with a huge lens nearby - can't remember her name, i'm sorry - she said she’d been watching this group for about three weeks. Apparently there are about twenty of them and she says she was surprised to see them feeding in the gums as she thought they preferred berries. I counted around ten-fifteen, with about three or four males, the rest juveniles and females. Very unusual to see them around here, so it's very exciting!
