Great report Nikolas.

It's interesting that you saw a Common (Indian) Myna at Crown Station Road. Until December 2008 there had only been one record of of a single Common Myna in the Capertee Valley. Since then I've seen small groups several times between Glen Davis and Glen Alice. Unfortunately it seems they might be moving into the valley. I'd be interested to hear of other sightings.
