Have just returned from a couple of hours walk in the heath and open woodland in the northern suburbs of Sydney.
Started at Red Hill Reserve 33° 44.25´ S 151° 15.30´ E before moving to the remnant bush and weed-infested area along Oxford Falls Rd 33° 43.675´ S 151° 14.110´ E. Had some excellent birding with some birds not frequently seen in Sydney. The highlights for me were:
RED HILL RESERVE:
Brown Quail - 6 including a pair with two small young.
Bar-shouldered Dove - 1
Pheasant Coucal - 1-2
Dusky Woodsdwallow - 4
Double-barred Finch - quite common including birds probably nesting.
OXFORD FALLS RD.
White-throated Gerygone - 2. The highlight here. This species is uncommon in coastal Sydney.
Other more common species seen in this small area at Oxford Falls Rd included.
etc. etc.. Almost 50 species in total from a limited variety of habitat.
