Feb 26: Sick

Flu! Spent all day in bed – could scarcely move.

Two brilliant sightings of rarities appeared on the wires late afternoon. Ged Tranter had a magnificent Black Falcon at Kedron Brook Wetlands, and Rod Gardner and Paul Clyne had two Australasian Shovelers at Lytton Roost. The Black Falcon would clearly be 1000:1 chance of it hanging around, but the shovelers perhaps might stay. If I could drag myself there tomorrow I might give it a go.

With no year ticks today, my year list remained on 244 species. I spent 0 hour 0 minutes birding, walked 0 km and drove 0 km.
