An Australian nature blog by teacher, poet and birder, Lorne Johnson

Respect to the 17 - yes 17 - hardy souls who turned up for the birding bash on Sunday. I was impressed with the enthusiasm of all who attended. Considering the mad weather, we saw quite a few birds. 9 Australasian Shovelers (sewage works), a Bassian Thrush (Church St) and 35 European Goldfinches (pony club) were the highlights. I'll hope to do another of these in spring-summer. LJ, June 30 2014.
