The ANPS WWs went along the Mulloon fire trail from Forbes Creek to Bombay today.  There was a lot of bird activity on the Forbes Creek end, but it gradually got quieter as we went NE.  The highlight was a Spotted Quail-thrush about halfway (although when I did a recce to the creek crossing on Monday they were present in good numbers around the crossing).  If anyone is into Pomaderris the display along the trail is pretty impressive and there are a heap of Greenhood orchids around the junction with the Gourock trail!

The following is an extract form an email from So Moore, whose property in the Tinderries was visitd by the COG mid-week group earlier this year.

"The Dusky Woodswallows are back and I have been seeing  Diamond Firetails and Hooded Robins during the winter. I saw a Yellow Robin near the house recently -- not a new sighting but quite unusual -- also a  pair of Scarlet Robins (not uncommon but not a common as the Flame -- a bit unusual for the time of year as they tend to move out of the open country)."
