Wednesday was similarly bright, but with few extra birds. A pair of Grey-faced Buzzards were high over the upland farm, and a Common Kingfisher was also new.
I'll be away on Pandan Island from tomorrow for a week, so the next bulletin will be on 30th or 31st. Hopefully I'll get some interesting birds over Christmas! Merry Christmas to whoever's reading this...
Peregrine, still present at the farms and using the pylons on a regular basis.

A big surprise on Tuesday morning was the sight of a pair of Tawny Grassbirds in the open on the main farm. I've only ever seen them at the DTRI farm before (where the Buttonquail track is). This bird posed nicely, and even did a bit of sun bathing, getting the rays to those hard to reach spots (below)
