Very surprisingly, given the number of new buildings which have gone up in the past year, White-fronted Chats have again bred there. This morning I found a group of four - 2 adults, 2 fledglings - in the horse paddocks at the end of Tralee St, with both adults feeding the youngsters.
Other species of note, on a brilliant morning wander, were diamond firetails, double-barred finches, a pallid cuckoo, a group of fairy martins over the large pond, three kestrels, including one giving warning calls, so probably nesting. 50 species in all.
