Hi all
Three of us left early to spend the morning in Orroral valley. On the drive 
down we caught a glimpse of a weird creature at the narrow one lane causeway 
just before Fitz's Hill. It was the size of a wombat, brown-black in colour 
with a thick black/white striped tail. We pulled over immediately but could 
find no sign of it.

Highlights along the Orroral Valley Heritage Walk were a single Golden-headed 
Cisticola, close views of a pair of Wedge-tailed Eagles perched prominently in 
a dead tree, and Flame Robins. At the old tracking station site we recorded 
Collared Sparrowhawk and Satin Bowerbird.

As previously reported we found some 4 Crescent Honeyeaters in banksia by the 
Nursery Swamp trail car park.

Later while relaxing at the Orroral River picnic area we watched a female 
Spotted Quail-thrush.

All up a pretty good day birding.
