On a very quiet sunny day – 31 species from all around the square – 12md to4pm!


Most interesting was a Peregrine Falcon perched atop a dead and twisted tall gum tree.  This tree is located between the water tank and behind the first of the back fences.  The bird eventually flew away towards Rivett.


There were two separate groups of Southern Whiteface.  One bird was in the company of Scarlet Robin and Yellow-rumped Thornbill in the vicinity of the SW dam.  The second group of four was not far away from Double-barred Finch, Scarlet Robin and Yellow-rumped Thornbill (in the paddock across the back fence in the vicinity of the power stanchion).  Hawthorn to the W side of the stanchion were providing good cover.


A final surprise were two Grey Currawong on the grass in company of a Pied Currawong – this time , only a hundred metres into the ‘Hill’ from the W end of Eucumbene Drive.


Feeding flocks of Striated Thornbill were seen in a couple of places.
