  • Superb Fairywren (leucistic) at Derwent Entertainment Centre reported by Els Wakefield on 22-09-2019
    One leucistic male fairywren in a troupe of fairywrens in the vegetation above the banks of the Derwent River, east of the Derwent Entertainment Centre. This was the same bird that was previously sighted by Karen Tie and in the same bushes where Karen found it earlier.
  • Australasian Bittern at Murphys Flat Wetlands reported by George Vaughan on 22-09-2019
    Murphys most beloved resident was present in the most fantastic way! I was photographing a goose across the river when, to my astonishment, I realised the bittern was perched out in the open! What followed was twenty minutes of uninterrupted views, the bittern hunching up against the cold and preening itself, about as contented as such a nervous creature can be! Also worth noting on this adventure were the displaying Musk Ducks and the lovely sight of my first Blue-winged Parrot for the season!
