I was at Callum Brae on Friday morning - and it was a very productive morning. A gang-gang near the entry (first time I've got one there), and the first of the bulbine lilies flowering. Frogs calling in the gullies and dams (at least 3 species in some cases), and quite a few areas with standing surface water and numerous small sundews. There were many rosellas to-ing and fro-ing around tree hollows (crimson and eastern), and choughs carrying food to a nest. Many dusky woodswallows around, although I didn't spy any nesting. Other birds included flame robin, diamond firetail, white-naped honeyeaters, and a kestrel. 43 species in total in a couple of hours, a quite respectable total and much better than some other recent visits.
there is a territorial magpie with nest not far inside the reserve, to right of the gate.
