We recorded 21 bird species, the highlight being a Diamond Firetail which perched on an overhead wire. This beautiful small finch is not common in our area, so we were lucky to see one.
The dull light made bird identification difficult in the roadside trees, but we did see several White-browed Treecreepers, Grey Fantails, Kookaburras, Eastern Rosellas, a Striated Pardalote and a few too many Noisy Miners.

Have you noticed the Sacred Kingfishers have arrived back at Lake Benalla. They are summer breeding migrants to southern Australia, and start arriving in our area in late September. Listen for their loud kek kek kek kek calls, as they look for a partner and a suitable tree hollow for nesting.
