went for a walk at Wanniassa Hills reserve this morning.  a disappointing lack of small birds  apart from many grey fantails, then a few fairy wrens and YR thornbills right near the end, but highlights were a kestrel, then excellent views of a hobby sitting in a dead tree.  Not far away from that, we saw a wedgetailed eagle sitting low in another dead tree, no more than 20 metres away. as we watched it, its mate flew past at about eye level, even closer.  they were soaring low over Farrer Ridge when we left, possibly attracted by the dead kangaroo beside Erindale Drive - a friend reported a little later that there were 2 wedgetailed eagles on the ground at that spot.
during the walk we saw a galah actively exploring a hollow - seemed to be cleaning it out.
