I have visited Coppin’s Crossing a few times in the past week.  The thistles are now brittle and not too hard to push one’s way through, though I am blessed if I can get down to the brambles where the finches hang out.  Yes, diamond firetails, red-browed, European gold and double-barred finches are all there, just can’t get close to them yet.

Of interest have been all of the above finches, flame robin, yellow-faced honeyeater, superb fairy-wrens and swallows in plague proportions, pipits, masked lapwing, golden whistler, kookaburra and a pair of brown falcons (seen three days running) who no doubt have a lot to do with the shy behaviour of the small birds.


I have not seen the wedge-tailed eagles or grey butcherbird that I have seen in previous years.
