Duncan McCaskill and John Goldie did the Mt Majura Woodland Survey over 3-6 December. The weather was fine and still, although cloudy one of the days. We had quite a mixed outcome for the 9 sites – some of them were so quiet that the first bird didn’t appear until the 9th minute of the 10 minute survey, while other sites had a very good range of birds. Rainbow Lorikeets are now starting to appear on Mt Majura – they have become regular in Watson in the past 12 months (& uncommon before that) and are obviously expanding into the woodland. We also recorded Gang-gangs in one site which is unusual for the Woodland Survey even though they are common on Mt Majura. Other less common survey records included Grey Shrike-thrush and Varied Sittella (which was carrying food). One site was especially rewarding with Speckled Warbler, Buff-rumped Thornbill, Yellow-rumped Thornbill, Brown Thornbill, Weebill and Mistletoebird being present. Leaden Flycatcher was also just outside the survey area.
