A  perfect morning for the Mt Ainslie survey: cool at first, later quite warm, calm conditions throughout. 26 Species were recorded for the 9 sites, 39 species on the walk in total. The most regularly recorded species were Galah, Crimson Rosella and Weebill (at 7 out of 9 sires), closely followed (unfortunately) by Noisy Miner(6 of 9 sites). Of interest at sites: 1 Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike, 1 Mistletoebird, 4 Varied Sitellas, Brown-headed Honeyeaters at and between sites. Only 1 MFF (not at a site) with 11 species, incl. 3 species of Robin: 1 Scarlet R. (male), 3 Flame Robins (incl. 1 male) and 1 Red-capped Robin (female). Speckled Warblers 2x.
There was also a touch of spring: 1 male Common Bronzewing booming, 2 Jacky Winters in full song, Wood Ducks inspecting tree hollows, and a group of White-winged Choughs crowding in and around a nest  (not sure that it was a new one) as a 2nd group approached.
