These garden reports are making me very jealous. My Sydney suburban garden shows very little seasonal variation. Without spending much time in it at the weekend I noticed only the usual suspects; i.e. Noisy Miners, rainbow lorikeets, Turtledoves, magpies, common mynahs, s c cockatoos, Red wattlebirds down the street and not nuch more.

I did do a 7 km walk round the water in a nearby suburb, Drummoyne and noticed the following (we do this walk for exercise and I am not allowed to stop for birds): silver gulls, pied cormorants, little? black cormorants, pelican, bar-tailed godwits, spur winged plovers, currawong, magpies, magpie larks, willie wag tail, ravens, welcome swallows, rock doves, common mynahs, noisy miners, red wattlebirds, white plumed honeyeaters, sparrows, starlings, turtledoves, bul-buls, black-faced cuckoo shrike, rainbow lorikeets and no doubt more that I cannot remember at the moment. No striated heron, pacific black ducks , pied stilts or terns this Sunday.
