Good eye,
I note from birding-aus archives that Striated Fieldwrens were suspected in 1998 to be extinct in the Sydney region, but I'm happy to report that I've readily found them on repeat visits more than a month apart (today and May 26) perched and scampering about on the clifftop track from Potter Point to Boat Harbour, in the Botany Bay NP at Kurnell. They're readily seen on the tracks, sand and rocks around the low damp heath on the clifftop.
Unfortunately however this area has become a favorite haunt of trail bikes now, where the riders flaunt the restrictions for the park entry Sir Joseph Banks Dve., and going roaring along this track and up and down the sandstone creekbeds.
