I tend to think of Wamboin and Carwoola as being somewhat similar
habitats and in our 15 months here have found Speckled Warblers to be
patchy at best.  The first week here we had 4 of them walking around
on the lawn but have only had a few (3 - 4) sightings of single birds

To save sending a second message, there seems to be movement in the
avifauna at the moment.  In addition to the Yellow-faced Honeyeaters
which seem to be "twitchy" over the last few days, larger numbers of
Little Ravens have appeared on the Hoskintown Plains (mainly gorging
themselves on the hawthorn berries along Briars-Sharrow Road) and this
morning we had at least three Scarlet Robins calling in our wooded
middle paddock. .
