There were at least six Dusky Woodswallows at The Pinnacle yesterday & today, at approximately 10.45am. They were in trees & above the edge-effect-zone overlooking the Kama 'homestead'.
Many groups of 10-30 honeyeaters flew over  the Stringy-bark forest towards the east during the 2 hours a Field Naturalists-lead walk was taking place. Mostly Yellow-faced and White-naped Hs. (Honeyeater movement, flying west on Saturday afternoon at Strathnairn Gallery (Holt)). No shortage of Mixed feeding flocks including pairs of Scarlet robins & whistlers around the Pinnacle reserve today and yesterday.
Friday's surprise was an Owlet nightjar (10.15am) calmly perched in the Stringy-bark forest until I moved off slightly whereupon it flew rapidly into a hollow-tree.
