Descriptions of other people's mixed feeding flocks tend to be as
interesting as other people's house extensions, vegetable gardens or
children's school results but as the below was fairly early and
central-suburban I shall inflict it nonetheless.  During the official
Symonston woodland survey on Saturday (with Alison, who was doing habitat
assessments of new subsites and who, attentive as usual to ground level,
found an unusual if indeed named (a) sedge and (b) native cockroach) I got
to the Mugga Lane riding school not long before midday after a morning
generally poor in small birds.  In the last subsite was a concentration
including Speck Warblers, Spot Pards, pair of Scarlet Robins, DB Finches, WT
Tcreeper, BR & YR Thornbills, YF H'ers and many Weebills.  I went back for
an hour this morning and explored a little further up the gully and found a
similar assemblage, give or take one or two, with Silvereyes and a G
Whistler, that I might have missed yesterday because of the time limit, and
a Rufous Fantail among the several Greys.
