The Mt Majura surveys of 9 sites were conducted over a couple of days with the majority of sites surveyed today. Road noise seemed particularly noticeable today from the Federal Highway. Numbers of birds were low with very few small birds seen apart from a small mixed feeding flock at the last minute in one of the northern sites. A total of 29 species were seen over all sites.


Despite being very quiet there were still a couple of highlights. One site had 2 groups of Choughs on opposite sides of the one site; 8 members in one group and 17 in the other. It was unclear if they were all part of the one family because they were moving away from each other. Numbers of Common Bronzewings were relatively high, with 5 seen in one site, and recorded in 4 of the 9 sites. Willie Wagtail is a bird we rarely record in the sites, but one was spotted in a site near Antill St. The small mixed flock produced a single Speckled Warbler, a couple of Striated and Buff-rumped Thornbills, a male and female Scarlet Robin and a male Golden Whistler.
