We also had several days in the Griffith area in the past week. We didn't go to Leeton but did call in at Centenary Lake at Temora ... highlights there ... 5 Black-tailed Nativehens, 3 Magpie Geese, rufous songlarks, fairy & tree martins ...
We visited Wattle Dam too (water much lower than when I was there in June) ... quite a short early morning visit but bar-shouldered, peaceful & 1 diamond dove came down to drink, as well as spiny-cheeked, striped, white-plumed, brown-headed & 1 white-eared honeyeaters. In addition silvereyes and double-barred finch also visited for a drink. The morning we were there it was blowing a gale and I think that may have been why the parrots didn't come down to the water.
Elsewhere in the forest we saw Mulga Parrots and rainbow bee-eaters, 2 red-capped robins (1+1), yellow thornbills, southern whiteface, babblers, common bronzewings, splendid fairy-wrens, chestnut-rumped thornbills ..... Len also saw what he thinks were quail walking across the dirt road....
Remembrance Drive .... plenty of Bluebonnets, apostlebirds, babblers, yellow-throated miners, red-rumped parrots, several Major Mitchell's flying over, a few ringnecks ....and some rainbow lorikeets ... a pity ...
Elsewhere, including Yenda Cemetery, Lake Wyangan, Campbell's Swamp ... highlights ....more mulga parrots, spiny-cheeked, striped, singing and blue-faced honeyeaters, white-breasted woodswallows, 1 cockatiel (flying over), red-kneed dotterel, chestnut teal, 1 red-necked stint, 2 Caspian terns, 2 Australasian Bitterns, glossy ibis, blue-billed ducks, Australasian & Baillon's Crakes in numbers and easily seen ...
Even though I missed out on the Turquoise Parrots this time it was still a productive and enjoyable trip (in spite of the 30+ heat each day!) .
I will post lists on Ebird over the next couple of days as I edit photos in case anyone is heading that way and interested.
