Hi All,

It has been interesting to learn that Glossy Blacks are probably locally nomadic and this
could be one explanation for a lack of sighting at Burrewarra Point. However a question is
raised in Duncan's comment that the GBs in his region are on a ' migration route'.  Does anyone
know how extensive such migrations might be?

Hi Des
We had three Glossy Blacks pass through our property (traveling west to east), on Taylors Creek Rd, Tarago (east of Lake George) on Sunday.
They spent about twenty minutes in remnant Eucalypt/Casuarina open woodland before flying coastward toward the TSR (open Eucalypt woodland/Themeda dominated grassland) on the corner of Taylors Creek Rd and the Bungendore Rd.
Apparently this is a long standing 'migration route' and they are known (very) occasional visitors: this is only my second sighting in eight years.
It will be interesting to see what happens with the development of the Capital Wind Farm...
