After a slow start, I've finally reached 100 ACT birds for the year.

I must say that I've found it surprisingly difficult, with many of
the usually reliable sites seemingly bereft of birds - presumably
due to the drought.  Obviously I need to explore some new sites!

Can anyone suggest some particularly rich (relatively speaking)
birding sites at the moment?

Highlights from today:
* Brown Falcons:  a light phase outside Tidbinbilla NR (moments after
  thinking that I should have seen one by now...), and a dark phase on
  the Brindabella Road towards Uriarra Crossing;
* a Musk Duck on the large farm dam on Brindabella Road;
* a dark phase Little Eagle circling near the Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby
  enclosure at Tidbinbilla;
* the previously mentioned birds at Mulligans Flat (but no Black HEs,
  as expected.)

N.B.  The Tidbinbilla NR wetlands area is currently closed due to
construction work.
