Last Friday 17th. I
Hall Cemetery- Pallid cuckoo (no orchids)
Rd to Yass- Saw about 8 Nankeen kestrels- they were everywhere.
WeeJ/Yass Rd- Murrumbidgee and Burrinjuck were as full as Ive ever seen.
Mullion- Nada. W swallow. Mountain creek Rd
TSR 60- Near
Heaps of golden moth orchids right at the entrance, plus Wurmbea, Drosera and tricoryne. This spot is interesting, starts off as YB-RG then there is a very sudden change to stringybarks, then back to YB-RG, then to a stringybark ridge before heading down to the river.
24 species of birds. Nothing spectacular- a kookaburra, 8 striated thornbills, gst, 2 golden whistlers, 21 yFH flying through, 2 wt treecreepers, 6 ww choughs, 6 striated pardalotes calling.
TSR 42 (creek & bridge) Mountain creek Rd
6 scrubwrens, lots of grey fantails, fairy wrens nest building, only 10cm above ground level, got a good view. 2 spinebills.
Corner of Fairlight and Mountain creek Rd
I stopped to see a Brown Songlark, I had quite a while to observe it sitting on the fence. Male.
Brookvale Homestead- ACT side, Mountain creek Rd
This is a funny spot, it is so open but always has birds. 18 YFH heading SW in 2 flocks, 6 grey fantails, a MFF13 species in 20 mins.
I survey these sites because they are all in different COG grid cells (I hope). I was hoping for cuckoos but only got a couple. Lots of honeyeaters tho.
