Hot, blustery, and humid weather suppressed a great deal of bird activity, but withgood habitat conditions the superb fairy-wrens continue to breed.

Overall, however the park looks good with larger trees well recovered from the near-drought conditions that prevailed early in 2021.

Weeds remain a problem, but the Westgate volunteers are back in action.

The three Weebill reported on eBird on 5 December is a new record of this species in the park.
