Highlights for February were four Brolgas flying overhead, calling and landing quite close and an usually large number of Red-necked Avocets (what elegant birds!) both at Werribee, a Bassian Thrush at Sherbrooke and Rufous Fantails at both Ferntree Gully and Sherbrooke.
March promises good birding. I'm going to wimp out of Boneseeding at the You Yangs (sorry, Merrilyn!) The traffic on the Geelong Road going to the Avalon Air Show has put me off. But I am going to Chiltern (site number 5 on my 100 top Australian birding sites) and I'm planning to do my first pelagic for the year out of Port Fairy. I can hardly wait.
