Nothing up to the level of potential Black Falcons (including fledglings), but here goes...

Fifty-eight species at my site over the weekend, which does not include the 'stringy' records by call of Brown Treecreeper (which are in the area) and Bassian Thrush.

The White-throated Nightjar called once on dusk on Friday evening, but was otherwise silent. It might have been intimidated by the very vocal Australian Owlet-nightjar and Southern Boobook, both of which called throughout the night both nights.

Breeding activity / dependent young were observed for Brown Goshawk, Wedge-tailed Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Yellow-tailed Black-cockatoo, Galah, Laughing Kookaburra, Grey Fantail, Rufous Whistler, Weebill, White-browed Scrubwren, Silvereye and Eastern Spinebill.

Both Satin and Leaden Flycatchers were present, as were both Rufous and Grey Fantails, Jacky Winter, Scarlet Robin, Red-browed and White-throated Treecreepers. The only cuckoos were Brush and Shining Bronze-cuckoo.

The Peregrine Falcon and Satin Flycatcher were the first records I have had at the site, which is now up to 89 species.
