I visited the area for about 90 minutes this morning. For the firt hour I thought a renaming might be needed since "Finch-less central" was more acurate. Then I found a few Red-browed finches (about4 flocks, totalling to about 15 birds. Some of the birds were young with a very noticeable white gape. As I was about to leave the area I also found 3 Diamond Firetails. Theonly robin seen was a female Scarlet Robin, also towards the end of my visit.|
Other interesting birds were two - OK a pair, as they were playing together- flying briefly in mirror image fomation as well as calling loudly to each other - Pergrine Falcons; and 3 Stubble Qualiin the area of bramble clumps above the fence.
No honeyeaters seen: I suspect the wind was a tad brisk for them.
