Swarovski 8.5×42 binoculars.

Does anyone living in the Melbourne area have some 8.5×42 Swarovski binoculars I can look through. I am thinking of buying some, but there are none available in Melbourne.

Thank you Elizabeth Lloyd.

We have had some good sightings in our part of Mulgoa Valley over the last week.

Best was a juvenile BAILLON’S CRAKE among the reeds on a dam, new for my local list.

Channel-billed Cuckoos calling, Riflebird in the yard

First ones in Yungaburra for the year heard last Monday morning. We usually have our first about a week after Sydney. The PNG birds are slow starters.

Had a female riflebird in the yard for the first time in many years. We are about a kilometre from rainforest. Regards, Alan

Channel-billed Cuckoos calling

It’s that time of year. I heard a CBC calling in Brisbane a few days ago, and then again the other night. Not sure if it is staying around or passing through. Given the dry conditions this year, I’m not sure if we will have the typical migration timing.

Regards, Laurie.

bell miners in inner Sydney?

A friend in Marrickville near the Cooks River let me know today she heard what she thinks is a bell miner. Have they been recorded this close into Sydney before? Cas
