Along Warks Rd this morning (flocks of trail bikes, but not of pilotbirds or cicadabirds) a small group of New Holland HEs in wet forest in the creek line. I don't recall seeing them in such habitat before, and had understood them to be only lured into the mtns when banksias or grevilleas are flowering in the dryer forests. Maybe just using the creek as a travelling route?

And en route home, along Lady Denman Dve, I noticed a couple of Little Black Cormorant nests in willows by the lake immediately alongside the bike track, perhaps 100m west of Clunies Ross Dve. Probably everyone else is aware of them, but I'd not noticed them previously.

cheers all
