29 hardy souls joined the Wednesday walk on June 19 at the ANBG. The wind was brisk, temperature cool, and the sun was struggling to have any impact. Once we got into the walk conditions improved - it was coldest in the carpark!  With hopes of Brown Gerygones and Pink Robins, we headed up the far side of the rainforest gully, but saw little until we went into the rainforest on the way back down. The gerygones were keeping company with Brown and Striated Thornbills, as well as a Golden Whistler, while a large group of Silvereyes moved past at the same spot.  On to the Sydney Gully, then a wander down the road past CSIRO gate. A detour to see the active Satin Bowerbird bower put us in the right spot to see two Pink Robin females.  Throughout the walk the Eastern Spinebills, Crimson Rosellas and White-browed Scrubwrens were in abundance. Although we'd diminished in numbers by the end of the walk, a large group enjoyed coffee or hot chocolate. Twenty one species in total.
