A couple of observations from the last 2 days.


Australian Spotted Crake at Crace  today. I can only find one other August record (COG and Eremaea) and that was last year.


At Mulligans Flat yesterday Striated Thornbills were in the early stages of nest building and Buff-rumped Thornbills were nearly finished nest building. The Buff-rumped Thronbill nest was the most exposed I have found; on the side of a large tree about 1.4m above the ground and close to one of the main tracks (picture attached).
