A fine early morning exploring the dry forest and woodland of the lower western and southern slopes of Mt Taylor (COG grid cell J15) this morning, with a lot of activity, including Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike, Eastern Rosella (inspecting hollow in a huge Scribbly Gum adorned with many other hollows - this tree must be of huge ecological value), Yellow-faced Honeyeater, Galah (inspecting hollow), Speckled Warbler, Double-barred Finch, Grey Butcherbird, Scarlet Robin.  No Great Egret (that Philip recently reported) near the dam.  In full flower were Silver Wattle, Cootamundra Wattle, Ploughshare Wattle, Hardenbergia, Cryptandra, Hovea, Urn Heath.  Also Leucopogon (not sure which species) just starting to flower.  Great views across the Bullen and Tidbinbilla Ranges to blazing white snow on the Brindabella Range.
