Just returned from a few pleasant days birding at Dryandra Woodland, staying in 
one of the Lions cottages there. The weather was a bit variable but we got out 
for plenty of walks. For birds, the start of the Ochre Track was the most 
productive. In the first 200m we saw the western form of Crested Shrike Tit, 
Red-Capped Parrot, Elegant Parrot, Blue-backed fairy-wren (also on Lol Grey 
Track), Rufous Treecreeper etc. The only bird we didn't catch up with was 
Little Wattlebird.
There were approx. 40 Carnaby's Black -cockatoo feeding in a paddock adjacent 
to the woodland.
We weren't able to find any Numbats, the weather didn't help, but we saw one 
Bettong while spotlighting, certainly not as many as were there when we visited 
previously. All in all we saw well over 50 species in the few days.
The cottages are basic, clean and comfortable and we must thank John and Lisa 
for their suggestions of spots to go looking for birds and mammals.
