I blitzed Mulligans Flat (mostly eastern side) and northern Goorooyarroo reserves on Sunday over about 5 hours.  I was mainly focussed on finding breeding records.  After an interrupted morning when I could not access the COG lock at Gooroo to drive in there (as someone had isolated it from the chain link and temporarily lost my GPS and had to backtrack to find it, I recorded 76 species of birds, including several Red-capped Robins (Mull & Gooroo), Hooded Robins, V Sittellas (especially eastern Mulligans), WW Trillers, Crested Shrike Tit, Jacky Winter, Pied Butcherbird (eastern Mulligans).  Highlights were Superb Parrots of which there are quite a lot around both reserves, especially Gooroo.  I got breeding records of most of the threatened species/species of interest.  Not many Dusky Woodswallows around this year, but there are plently of Trillers in several places.
