I took a prowl in ANBG this morning.  I thought the Gardens were looking really good - a great improvement from the recentish past.  It was also nice to see a large school group working their way around the place learning about plants. 

No sign of the Poweerful Owl anywhere.  I might have heard a Brown Gerygone at the top of th Rainforest Gully but it didn't call for long and I could not see it.

What I did hear as a sign of Spring was at least 3 Fan-tailed Cuckoos calling more or less simultaneously from different parts of the Gardens.  Perhaps as a sign that Winter hasn't completely gone a lone Cresecent Honeyeater was in the Sydney Gully, but possibly not for much longer given the amount of harassment it was getting from the New Holland Honeyeaters.
