We finished the last of our monthly surveys of a
small section of the Olympic Site last Saturday 7th July.
Highlights included a Spotless Crake and
Buff-banded Rail seen from the boardwalk at the Northern Water Feature (near the
Superdome), but no sign of the Spotted Crake we saw here last month. A
Shining Bronze-cuckoo (race plagosus) added further interest.
Nearby on Kronos Hill were good numbers of
White-plumed, Yellow-faced and White-naped Honeyeaters, feeding in flowering
The Eastern Water Quality Control Pond
was quiet, but 4 Hardhead were noted.
