There is plenty of flowering mistletoe at Mulligans Flat. I rode my bike around the reserve yesterday morning visiting all the mistletoe I could find.
Despite the relentless search I could only muster 2 Eastern Spinebills feeding in the mistletoe. Found quite a bit of flowering Brittle Gum covered in pollinating insects.
The highlight was however finding a Rufous Fantail in the far east of the reserve skulking in a patch of dense wattle. Other birds seen included Speckled Warbler, Rufous Whistler, Yellow Thornbill, Grey Butcherbird, Brown-headed Honeyeater, Scarlet Robin and a (silent) Western Gerygone. Also 4 Black-fronted Dotterels at the large dam, of which 1 was a juvenile.
