This morning we travelled along Mt Franklin Road and down Bendora Dam Road to the eastern end of New Chums Road. In that stretch we observed an extraordinary number of Flame Robins (evidently beginning to move out of the mountains). I would say between 60-80; certainly the largest number I have ever seen on one day.

Apart from this the forests were quite quiet, with the only speciality being a single Red-browed Treecreeper. There weren't even any Currawongs!
