On Sat 25th July, I spent a few hours birding around McGraths Hill & Pitt

Highlights at Pitt Town Bottoms Rd 
3 Whistling Kites harassing 2 Marsh Harriers 
1 immature Spotted Harrier (great close up view)
100+Chestnut Breasted Mannikins (couldn't find the Black Headed Mannikin
1 Reed Warbler (over-wintering) Pitt Town Lagoon
I didn't find the Australasian Bittern on this occasion
A quick visit (before the rain set in) to Londonderry produced at least 50
Swift Parrots.

Total species for this short visit was 76.

Not bad for a few hours work.
