Yesterday there were at least 4 in the Grevillea plantings at JWNR.  However, I see from eBird that the species has been recorded throughout this month at that reserve by 10 separate observers, including one record of 14 individuals. EBird is such a great help in keeping things in perspective.  What it brings home is that with so many keen-eyed observers in the field these days you need to get up very early in the morning to be the first to report an unusual species.  Speaking of unusual, I have a report from Lach Read of a second (earlier) Chukar sighting.
