Activity has quietened down considerably.

Bushlarks and Brown Songlarks were still present.

Some display singing from Bushlarks still in progress.

Stubble Quail still doing their three note calls.

Cisticolas still calling.

Only two short display flights by male Brown Songlarks in a two hour
duration. No sightings of female or juvenile Brown Songlarks.

A single Wedgie.

A flock of Gang Gangs which flew from the direction of the Bidgee Valley
into the Big Row of Pines, plus a very large flock of Starlings which
were demonstrating good formation flying and which were feeding in the
grasslands were the highlights. At one stage I observed a single young
Starling leading a flock of several hundreds of birds. This prompted the

'Who decides who goes first?'
