Hi all,
This afternoon at Cooleman Ridge, there was a lot of spring activity. There was:
- a group of Yellow-rumped Thornbills building a nest in a low shrub;
- a large group of c.25 European Goldfinches feeding on seeds in the paddocks;
- two Tree Martins and 3 Welcome Swallows flying around during dusk;
- a pair of Southern Whitefaces hanging around the place (they have been in this area for sometime, maybe they have a nest?). Also possible nesting for Buff-rumped Thornbills, Australian Magpies and Superb Fairy-wrens.
- a group of c.6 Dusky Woodswallows feeding before moving on;
- a Fuscous Honeyeater and a pair of White-eared Honeyeaters, followed by two Yellow-faced Honeyeaters;
- a group of c.7 Brown Quail;
- a pair of dark Grey Fantails;
- also a nest of European Starling;
- and an Australian Hobby lit beautifully in the last rays of sunlight (unfortunately the currawongs chased it away before I could take some decent photos).
Cooleman Ridge can be great at times, but also sometimes there is absolutely nothing around.
