Sean, in answer to your queries, we have been monitoring this reserve, and
the latest atlass of it about a week ago, produced the birds listed below.
You will note several, such as the Buderigar, Black Honeyeater and the
Crimson Chat are part of the present eruption of inland birds to the south.
We did not find the White-wing Fairy-wren on this trip, but we have no
doubts they are still there, as are other species we did not see on this
trip. If there have been other visiting birdwatchers to this reserve in the
last month or so, I would appreciate hearing from you and about the birds
you saw there. Thanks!
