1 July bird survey

Despite the cold and very recent rain, the survey produced gratifying results. Especially pleasing were the numbers of small birds: Red-browed Finches seem to be increasing in number; Golden Whistlers have been present for some months now; Eastern Spinebills have returned; and as usual Spiny-cheeked Honeyeaters are in the park over winter.

Moreover, raptors seem to be back. Just as rewarding are the reports and photographs, especially those from Ursula Dutkiewicz, for the month of June.
