There were a pair of double-barred finches just outside our office in Unwin Place in Weston when I arrived at work last Tuesday. First time I’ve seen any there in the dozen or so years I’ve been there. I do see then quite frequently when cycling home along the bikepath between Weston and Scrivener Dam.

There were a pair of Double-barred Finches on the back side of Cooleman Ridge NTrail this afternoon and one lone female Scarlet Robin. The Brown falcon was still present as was the Grey Butcherbird I had seen previously at the northern end.

A very large flock of Red Wattlebirds flew over landing briefly in dead trees before heading off in an easterly direction.

Didn't see any of the Diamond Firetails and Flame Robins that were abundant last Wednesday.
