I visited the northwest side of Coppins Crossing (Finch Central) this morning. A pair of White-fronted Chats evidently breeding, they were seen carrying food on three separate occasions although I didn't attempt to find the nest. Other things seen or heard included Diamond Firetail, Rufous and Brown Songlark, Wedge-tail, Dusky W Swallow, Tree Martin, Horsfields Bronze Cuckoo.
Also a Monarch (or Wanderer) butterfly, a vagrant in the ACT, and the first I have seen locally. This is the same species that has featured in numerous TV nature docos due to their extraordinary annual migration from North America to overwinter in their millions at a handful of sites in Mexico.
