Hi Chris,

I recorded a pair of White-browed Scrubwrens in weedy thickets along the
Greenway in Lewisham West, just south of the main Western Sydney train line
and north of Old Canterbury Road, while conducting an ecological impact
study there about four years ago.  I suspect that scrubwrens occasionally
disperse into the Greenway from vegetated areas along the Cooks River, to
the south. It's good to hear that the Greenway is providing habitat for
small populations of native birds.

Kind regards,

Dr Stephen Ambrose

Hi everyone

I live in Dulwich Hill along the light rail / Greenway corridor. There are a
resident pair of White-browed scrubwren living in the adjacent bushcare site
and nearby weedy thickets. The pair frequently visit my small garden to use
the birdbath and to feed amongst my thick plantings. I know there are
probably scrubwrens surviving on a section of the Greenway in Leichhardt but
I wondered if anyone knows of others in the inner west?(ie not Wolli Creek).
We also have resident Superb fairywrens and Spotted pardalotes.
