At the woodland survey today (28.9.) on the eastern side of Mt Ainslie the highlight was a male Red-capped Robin, also first Leaden Flycatcher (as also found by Marnix), Mistletoebirds although only few mistletoes with berries, most widespread Noisy Friarbird, incl. one nest half-complete (but notable that in the suburb of Ainslie at this stage only passing birds). Many of the smaller birds only in low numbers, e.g. no Buff-rumped Thornbill at any of the 9 sites, just once on the walk between 2 sites. I feel the drought effects on bird numbers are showing through more and more.
