Walked around the lower western slopes and the upper eastern side of Mt Ainslie on Saturday. Long stretches were bird-free; especially many of the summer migrants only in low numbers; missed out even on some of the regulars, such as Speckled Warbler and Common Bronzewing (although present elsewhere on Mt Ainslie).
One 'prime' Leaden Flycatcher (LF) territory [it included an active nest of the Noisy Friarbird:  LFs tend to nest close to N. Friarbirds] was held by a female  LF only. It was singing intensively. Previously I had at times only encountered single males advertising a territory, but never just a female.
Other obs. of note: total of 15 immat. Golden Whistlers, max. 7 in a loose group, 1 female Satin Flycatcher, 2 Glossy Black Cockatoos, 1 Hobby, 1 pair Sparrowhawk, and in the evening in the neighbouring square to the East 1 Little Eagle almost stationary over its territory.
