Superb walk at Mulligans this morning. More than 80 Straw-necked Ibis grazing the paddock beyond the big dam. A glimpse of a Grey Butcherbird,

good view of a Fan-tailed Cuckoo




and then, to our delight, less than 100m from an exit gate, a Bettong bounded from under our feet and off into undergrowth about 20 m away (very much a first time for us)!


Now for a sighting of New Holland Mouse - the latest re-introduction? (
