In Jenny's absence I co-ordinated this survey yesterday.
After all the activity for the past week, hopes were high for some very good sightings.
Alas the elements conspired against, with a very strong wind greeting us as we arrived round 7 am, the first poor birding morning in about a week. 
A total of  46 species were recorded, but with surprisingly few migrants, the most abundant (by far) of these being the Noisy Friarbird, a pair of which were already nest building.
Both gerygones were present as is usual.   Also a Dollarbird was seen, the first for the season to my knowledge.
A couple of Superb Parrots and a single Pallid and Fan-tailed Cuckoo round off the highlights.
Once again my thanks to all those that helped survey in such disappointing conditions - it was a pity that the one morning we're out there in 3 months was less than ideal.
