G'day all

I spent an hour or so in the Cobra Killuc Wildlife Reserve yesterday.  This is a
small reserve to the north of the Hamilton Highway near Hexham in south western
Victoria.  I hadn't been here before and was expecting a bit of remnant plains
woodland.  It is actually an old sugar gum plantation with regenerating wattles
and lots of plains wildflowers and grasses.  Quite a few birds (see below)
including two male Scarlet Robins and I flushed a Southern Boobook from a roost
less than a metre above ground.

Do any of you know this reserve?  I think it was used as a relocation site for
Eastern Barred Bandicoots.

One curious thing - there was no mistletoe on the Sugar Gums.  Why?
