Went for a quick wander around Campbell Park this morning.

I saw a Brown Treecreeper in the woodlands, about 100m in from the carpark,
just off the main track (near the Dusky Woodswallow nest, for those that saw
it at the nesting workshop two weeks ago).

This is the first time I have seen a Brown Treecreeper in CP for about seven

Does anyone have any recent records?

The last I heard about this species at CP, was that a pair was surviving
around near the gun club, but otherwise the species was no longer present.

Also at CP today, I checked up on some of the nests we found two weeks ago:
- the Dusky Woodswallow mentioned was feeding three nestlings.
- Western Gerygone is on eggs.
- White-winged Choughs were all collecting food.
- Noisy Friarbirds were still building.
- Grey Fantail young have fledged.
- Pied Currawongs have fledged.
- Two enormous Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike nestlings are about to make the

Also managed to find a Buff-rumped Thornbill nest. The dome nest was built
in a large crevice in the side of a large old tree.
