At a second attempt, Defence Environment Officer Sue Mathams and I did the spring woodland survey on Tuesday, initially in unexpected fog but then in fine and sunny conditions. The Range is exceedingly dry and festooned with an overabundance of macropods. We managed to record 44 species in or around the sites, and one (a Common Bronzewing) only between sites. Migratory species were well represented, particularly Rufous Whistler, Olive-backed Oriole, Shining Bronze-cuckoo, Grey Fantail and White-throated Gerygone. The only raptor was a Brown Falcon. We failed to record any robins. There was much inspection of hollows going on and several thornbill species were breeding. b
