Diddams Close, Belconnen
One Crested Shrike-tit with small feeding flock of 6 White-plumed HEs and one Grey Shrike-thrush seen last Thurs (3 May). They were foraging in hanging bark of E. bicostata, Blue Gum, on eastern side of Ginninderra peninsula, south of Diddams Close carpark.
The ABR records only 20 CSTs last year, and some of those were in Tinderry where they feed on E. viminalis, Manna Gum, which also has bark ribbons.
