The birds weren’t  singing  early, until about 10am when Scarlet Robins were heard calling persistently in a couple of places. Altogether there were 8 Scarlet Robins (one which was heard but not seen down towards the gate to the reserve at 11am). Three Golden Whistler (two were male) and 1 male  Rufous Whistler, 2 Yellow Robin, 4 Grey Shrike Thrush, a couple of Spotted Pardalote heard, 2 Speckled Warbler, 7 Weebill, 5 Brown Thornbill, 14 Grey Fantail, 4 White-throated Treecreeper, 2 Black-faced Cuckoo Shrike. No raptors on a lovely sunny morning.


Also seen were 1 red Fox, 1 Red-necked Wallaby and others nearby not seen, and a few Kangaroos.


There are more dogs appearing in this reserve, which are not on leads.
