Mt Greville is often a birding desert. However, with picture postcard conditions today, the place was busy with Eastern Spinebills and Yellow-faced Honeyeaters tucking into flowering shrubs - one species with red pea like flowers was quite prolific.

The birding highlight was a Yellow-tufted Honeyeater seen enroute from the lookout at the top of the Waterfall Gorge to the summit. The birding lowlight was pulling a deceased Swamphen from the middle of the road south of Boonah [it was still warm and its relatives were hanging about and were likely to be skittled].

While there weren't too many birds around the lavender themed winery between Boonah and Mt Alford, there were glorious views of Scenic Rim to be had from the alfresco eating area.

Regards, Laurie.
