In the Castlereagh State Forest, west of Sydney, at the start of road 27,
we saw 8 Regent Honeyeaters today.  Other good birds were 2 Black-chinned
Honeyeaters, 3 Red-capped Robins. Other honeyeaters seen were: Fuscous,
White-naped, Yellow-faced, White-eared, Brown-headed, White-cheeked,
White-plumed, Eastern Spinebill, Noisy Miner, & Noisy Friarbird.  

Back out on the road, just south of the entrance & outside house 194, we
saw c10 Swift Parrots. The blossom in the Eucalypts is so extensive & the
forest pumps.  It is hard not to get excited.  Dick Turner reports
extensive Mugga Ironbark in blossom at the corner of Londonderry Rd &
Carrington Rd Londonderry.

We saw 114 species today
