We went for a walk there (parking where wark's rd joins Bendora dam rd),
walking down to the junction with new chums rd.

The main purpose was to hear if lyrebirds were singing. We heard 3 or 4
distantly, and one near to on new chums rd. however this one stopped singing
when we got close walking along the path and we only heard a minute or two
of machine gunning, ytbc imitations &c

We also heard one pied currawong, many sulphur-crested cockatoos, several
crescent honeyeaters, and saw one Pilotbird. We saw a party of 4 Gang-gangs
(2m, 2f) feeding quietly and then, towards dusk, a flock of 18 flew over the
tree tops and settled creakily into two separate trees (about 200m apart),
about half the flock in each, presumably to roost.

And a tawny frogmouth by the road on the way home just after the bitumen
begins. My son saw it moving before it froze and described it as 'waddling
around on the ground eating insects'.
