I walked for an hour and half on Black Moumtain yesterday much of it skirting recent and not-so reason burnt areas. It was an avian desert. The biodiversity jewel in the crown for Black Mountain used to be the deep litter layer. Not any more.

Yes, I’ m to lead one of the ‘ themed walks’ (birds) in connection with it.  I have spent some time walking the tracks of Black Mountain to choose an appropriate route.  Not a lot on offer in winter.  Whether birds are seen will depend on the MFF lottery.   At the moment White-naped Honeyeaters are among the most common species, feeding in the canopy.


For anyone interested the new  graded ‘ Bushland Walk’ (in the unfenced section of the area allocated to ANBG) is a pleasant stroll but only out and back, and not conspicuously birdy at the moment.

This announcement may of interest to some members.

The attached list of background papers (available later) includes this one:


Fennell, P (2018) Birds of Black Mountain, 1964–2016. Black Mountain Symposium 2018 Background Paper No. 8.

Please see below information about the upcoming Black Mountain Symposium 2018. Posters and list of presentations attached to this paper.


Black Mountain symposium will be held on 24 August in the Discovery Theatre at CSIRO.


The symposium is covering everything we’ve been able to find out about Black Mountain relating to it its cultural history and values as well as its biophysical values. A series of background papers is being written for the symposium to underpin the presentations; some of the cultural papers/presentations are likely to be of particular interest to Canberra ICOMOS members (see second half of the attached list) and we’d love to see them at the event.


People can register for the symposium via the Eventbrite link at; I’ve also attached a poster with some details.


It would be great if you could forward this email to people on your ICOMOS email list if you feel that is appropriate.
