A slightly windy, cool but sunny morning. A rewarding morning for waterbirds and others.
It was delightful to see 23 Pink-eared Duck, and 8 Hard Head Duck enjoying the cement barricade in the pond furthest from the RSPCA. At least 500 Galah were feeding on the slopes nearby, flying up reluctantly as I walked past and then settling again. This pond also has about 10 Hoary Headed/ Australasian Grebe ( hard to tell at times but mostly Hoary Headed I think). Australasian Coot and Grey Teal were also present.
The pond closest to the RSPCA was quieter with 23 Australasian Coot, 2 Silver Gull, 1 Black-fronted Dotterel and 2 Grey Teal and 2 immature Grebe.
Closer to the RSPCA above the grassland area were 3 Eurasian Skylark singing very high in the air, Red-rumped Parrot and Starlings at the RSPCA. A convention of 15 Currawong were gathering and flying along the Lower Molongolo, towards Scrivener Dam.
