Michael Lenz carried out the woodland survey at the lower eastern slopes of Mt Ainslie on 24 March, a calm but overcast day. The welcome rain developed well after the survey was completed.
At the 9 sites 35 species were recorded, with another 4 species in between. The number of species per site varied from 2 to 14. Small woodland species were scarce except in two MFFs (each at a survey site). The MFFs included Speckled Warbler (2x) and Varied Sittella (1x). Notable were several small groups and single birds of Red Wattlebirds and Noisy Friarbirds moving in a northerly direction, but stopping frequently to feed in mistletoes and younger foliage of some eucalypts. At one site a Little Friarbird was present as well. No smaller honeyeaters were migrating.
Other species of interest were: Brown Goshawk, Long-billed Corella, a flock of 11 Brown-headed Honeyeaters, Rufous Whistler and White-throated Gerygone.
