Well, it's Murphy's Law, isn't it?  I found a large group of W-f chats this morning, including at least 2 dependent young being fed by adults (yay!).  I also found 2 Diamond firetails, and a pair of Goldfinches, neither of which I observed on Blitz Day.

I tried to take some pictures of the Chats, so if there are any good ones I'll email them through tonight (at <100KB of course!).

Hi everyone,

I blitzed Stromlo on Sunday and despite a lengthy search I was (gulp) unable to locate any White-fronted chats.  I assumed that the large number of runners and cyclists on-site that day, coupled with the high-speed car rally from the previous day, may have temporarily scared them away, but I have been back again this week and have still not seen them.  Has anyone seen them recently?
