I decided that I would put in some time today to add some licht to my blitz by ferretting around the parts of Kowen (as close to Carwoola as the ACT gets)  I have volunteered to cover at the end of October.  I will fill in 5 data sheets for 4 squares as a result of todays effort. and have a much better idea of where I should go (and how to get there - MTB essential for one site.

The most surprising observation of the day was the number of male Scarlet Robins around in P14.  In the two 500m sites I worked in that square I would estimate I saw at least 10 male birds.  But no females - all on their nests?

There was a good range of birds i the Kowen Stock Reserve (aka The Pound) including a very noisy bunch of Choughs around a nest.

Finally thanks to ACT Parks and Con, who now seem to be responsible for Forests as well, for giving me access to the forests.
