I saw and watched for a while the first Black-faced Monarch seen here in Mulgoa 
Valley by me In 40 years. In thick  shrubbery on the (dry) creek, in drizzle.
   Common on the Coast and obviously does get to the Valley from time to time.

  Today there were two loudly calling Reed Warblers, about 150 m apart. One in 
dead Typha.  one in a clump of Arrow Bamboo next to, still 90% empty, small 
dams on another creek

   YTBlack Cockatoos shredding bark off the backyard White Cedar and prying out 
Witchetty Grubs. They effectively prune dead twigs and small branches off. Very 
messy, but nothing compared to the processional caterpillars due in the next 
month or so, along however with various Cuckoos.
