Bird Survey 31 May/1 June 2021

48 species were observed including and a pair of Dusky Woodswallows seen flying overhead – the first record of this species in the Park. Recorders noted that as areas of vegetation mature and become more established, new bird species are appearing, some of which are staying for longer periods. The Eastern Spinebills are good examples.

To great excitement, a Powerful Owl – also a first – was photographed on two occasions in mid-May.
