Feeling disinclined to devote an afternoon to destroying blackberries I took myself and Frances off to check a couple of squares in the Carwoola area.  My target was square R18, and in particular the chunk of Yanununbeyan National Park within that square.  Every track I tried, attacking from Woolcara Lane as far as the sign saying trespassing prohibited, ended up in people's (private) front yard so I would love to know how people get into the Park.
Despite the failure we ended with a fair range of birds and reports of one sort or another will be submitted for 4 squares.  The most interesting birds were two kestrels hunting just South of Briars Sharrow Road (R16) and at least 6 Richards pipits close to the entrance to Woolcara Station.  The 6 were in two groups of 3, and we had seen a further group of 3 close by, so there might have been 9.  However being a Conservative I stuck with 6.
