My thanks to Alastair Smith (Happy Birthday Alastair!) and ultimately Chris Davey for introducing me (belatedly, to my shame) to this lovely woodland reserve. (Entrance clearly marked APPROXIMATELY 2km west of Coppins Crossing Road, along William Hovell Drive.) Much of the understorey is of high quality Kangaroo Grassland, with apparently a good diversity of forbs, given the time of year. Lots of mature boxes and gums.

Highlights include a group of four Brown Treecreepers, Fuscous and Brown-headed HEs, Stubble Quail, G-h Cisticola in breeding colours. Kookas vigorously disputing the point - maybe a youngster being evicted rather than inter-territorial, but?? Also a group of four Wallaroos/Euros - perhaps the first I've seen in CNP.

Tree Martins and a Pallid Cuckoo calling; I am not going to stick my neck out and suggest whether either of these is unusual for the time of year.

cheers all
