Lots of breeding activity at both sites yesterday and today.  Unfortunately at Newline, the dominant breeding species is the starling.  Numbers are so high that Tree Martins appear to have left their usual nesting trees altogether as none were seen.  It was a good morning for raptors, WT Eagle, Brown Goshawk, kestrel and Black-shouldered Kite.  Also lots of Eastern Rosellas, and good number of Dusky WS,plus  a single Rainbow Lorikeet but another may have been in a hollow.  Migrants included Sacred Kingfisher and WT Gerygone.
At O'Connor Ridge - choughs, Brown Thornbills and WBSW were feeding fledglings, a Tawny Frogmouth was on a nest, Noisy Friarbirds lived up to their name, heard a Western Gerygone, lots of fantails.
Finally, if you happen to be in the front left (eastern) paddock at Newline and find a pair of black-framed sunglasses, they are mine.
