I made a brief visit to East O'Malley Woodland in my lunch break today. I found at least 4 Speckled Warblers spread out across 3 separate plots on the lower slope of O'Malley Ridge. One bird was in a MFF with a Brown-headed Honeyeater, Yellow-rumped Thornbills and Superb Fairy-wrens. It was good to see this species still present despite the noisy development now occurring in places.

It seems Noisy Miners have taken over the valley floor and estate in large numbers, to the exclusion of other birds except Eastern Rosella, Crested Pigeon, Magpie-lark and Magpies. The new wetland (chain of ponds) only had the usual Wood Ducks.
