WHYALLA'S WAGTAIL
I was hurting.  There was a Citrine Wagtail at the Whyalla Wetlands and I hadn't seen it.  Of course I was delighted to see the Tufted Duck at Werribee on 3 January.  Of course I was.  But the duck's presence did not make up for the wagtail's absence. Citri...

A WHOLE NEW YEAR OF BIRDING
Here we are in 2019.  A whole new year ahead of us, in which I plan to see lots of birds.  A new year with renewed enthusiasm and heightened expectations. I'm hoping I might see five new lifers in 2019:  a modest enough target I hope.  Most years I achieve ...

CHRISTMAS ISLAND, DECEMBER 2018
On Friday, we flew to Christmas Island.  Of course the plane was late.  Eventually we arrived, adjusted our watches to accord with the half hour time difference from Cocos and drove to our accommodation.  We were staying at Cocos Padang.  I hadn't stayed he...

COCOS ISLAND, NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 2018
I was feeling very positive as I stepped off the plane on West Island in the Cocos (Keeling) Atoll.  It was Friday 30 November.  I had seen three lifers in the previous three days in Western Australia, and now Cocos promised more.  I had hopes that the Bara...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA NOVEMBER 2018
I had booked on Richard Baxter's tour of Cocos and Christmas Islands and, as we stopped in Perth on the way, it was an opportunity to pick up the two Western Australian birds I was missing:  the Crested Honey Buzzard and the Western Quailthrush.  I'd failed...

RUTHERGLEN, CHILTERN AND THE MIGHTY MURRAY
Rog and I have just returned from a few days in Rutherglen.  The weather was not good - the best day was Friday, when all we did was drive home.  We drove up on Tuesday, and it rained on and off all day.  Nevertheless, I came home with a birdlist of 93 spec...

MOREPORKS AND MORE
I've been preoccupied with my fifth book, Birding Australia's Islands,  which is scheduled to be published next year.  Hence I've been neglecting my blog. Since my last posting, I've visited Phillip Island, Trin Warren Tam-boore, Werribee's Western Treatmen...

GIPSY POINT AND MALLACOOTA
To relieve the boredom of Melbourne's winter, Rog and I spent a week birding around Mallacoota.  We stayed at Gipsy Point's Luxury Lakeside Apartments.  I saw 82 species of birds around Gipsy Point and Mallacoota, and a further 26 species en route, making a...

MY THOUSANDTH WALK
This morning I did my thousandth walk. There was nothing remarkable about it.  It was a cold grey winter morning.  Luckily there was no rain and little wind.  It was an east walk.  One house was being demolished, one fence reconstructed and two building sit...
