Hi everyone

Did some bush wandering in Garigal National Park, entrance from Douglas Street, 
St. Ives (about 18km from Sydney GPO) at S
33° 43.592' E 151° 11.047', UTM Zone 56, Easting 56331871 Northing 62666671 and 
60-145 metres altitude.  Generally a heath on
sandstone area, and with a permanently running creek edged by taller trees, 
this is a fantastic bushwalk through a variety of

Much flowering Banksia ericifolia (gorgeous long orange cobs), some Lambertia 
formosa and a little Darwinia fascicularis were
drawcards for honeyeaters, particularly heavily brown-flanked Tasmanian 
Silvereyes, New Hollands, Yellow-faced and
White-cheeked Honeyeaters.  Eastern Spinebills, Noisy Friarbirds and Little 
Wattlebirds joined in.

Variegated Fairy-wrens were nice and a Common Scalyfoot was sunning itself.

Cheers and Happy Times with Nature
