The Red Hill Woodland survey was done over two mornings - I did the southern sites (6-9) in cool but clear and calm conditions on Saturday morning, 25 June, and Stuart Harris did the northern sites the following morning in cold and frosty conditions. Overall diversity and numbers were marginally higher than average, with 31 species recorded for the whole site (mean over 13 winter surveys of 29.5). Species variety was also typical for winter but no mixed feeding flocks were observed and numbers of small birds generally were low.
The most unexpected sighting was a pair of vocal Rainbow Lorikeets that shot through site 9, seemingly on their way from Garran to Forrest. This is the first time the species has been recorded during the Red Hill surveys, and interestingly coincides with a report to Canberrabirds by Nick Payne of a pair of Rainbow Lorikeets in Garran on the 27th. Other species to spark a little more interest were a Nankeen Kestrel, a halfway intermediate Crimson/Eastern Rosella hybrid ("paired" with a full Crimson Rosella as seems the norm on Red Hill) and a single White-plumed Honeyeater.
