Kathy and I were at lots 17-18, Orana Rd, Wamboin yesterday (partly while
Elizabeth, Bill and ? were there).  We saw 3 Chestnut Rumped Heathwren -
they moved only about 30m from the kunzea?? at the lot 17 gate in the 1.5
hours we were there.  It took us some effort to find them and then they just
went about their business without being too concerned about us.

Also in the area were Dusky Woodswallows and Rufous Whistlers both feeding
young, Hooded Robin (& possibly a young), Rufous Songlarks, Jacky Winters +
the usual grassland/woodland birds (choughs, honeyeaters, scrub wrens etc).
Missed the trillers and Whiteface.  Saw a peregrine crossing Norton Road on
the way home.

Things have changed at the Birchman estate since we were there a week  
ago.  The White-browed Woodswallows have flown, with those very young  
chicks that they were feeding and protecting last Saturday.  A few  
were across the road at Lot 15 and 1 was seen feeding a juvenile .   
Dusky Woodswallows were still about, and we saw 1 nest with young  
birds.  Also, the triller's nest, with a bird sitting last week, has  
young birds.  Willie Wagtail feeding young in a nest.  There was a  
young small cuckoo, following a triller about in a tree and shrubs,  
across the road from Lot 17--18.

Another couple of bird watchers were there, perhaps John and Cathie.   
If them, we wonder what they saw.  Can't find an email address for them.

Interesting the way things change in a week
