This is a bit old now, but still interesting I think. I also visited
Mulligans Flat on the 16th Feb, in the afternoon.
It was extremely windy, but I managed to see a red capped robin female
on the Western edge, just over the first ridge. Plus a pair right out in
the open near the 'Black honeyeater dam'.
Also along that treeline I saw sittellas feeding dy, red wattlebird
feeding dy. 3 leaden flycatchers fighting. A flock of 12 brown headed
honeyeaters (some immature), a grey butcherbird, western and white
throated (3) gerygones, common bronzewing, grey currawong (heard),
choughs, BFCS, sparrows, one diamond firetail and wedge-tailed eagle. I
saw lots of kookaburras and I expect that is why I saw few lizards.
Immature ob oriole and rufous whistler calling loudly, like they had
been abandoned and were lost. Many striated thornbills. Other usuals.
Strangely I did not see any hooded robins, speckled warblers,
dollarbirds or dusky woodswallows and only 3 pied currawongs.

Also saw red necked wallabies, swamp wallabies and >140 grey kangaroos
in one mob. I was walking through the forest and actually bounced off a
spiders web- first time that has happened. It was a massive Orb spider.
Also some spined spiders (jewel spider- Austracantha minax).
Although the whole area is heavily grazed, some plants have managed to
grow enough to flower, and perhaps every 5m there was a flower, of
species like goodenia, hibbertia, tricoryne.
