The survey was done on Monday 30, initially in cool, breezy conditions, but warmer later in the morning. The reserve remains very dry, although there is some water in all but one of the dams. I saw numerous rabbits and one hare.
Highlights included my first Leaden Flycatcher of the season, an Olive-backed Oriole doing a creditable job of mimicking calls of rosellas and other birds as I watched, and two Western Gerygones together in a sapling.  There were good numbers of White-throated Gerygones in the woodland along the farm fence, and Sulphur-crested Cockatoos and Little Corellas nesting in adjacent trees. Strangely, no Dusky Woodswallows, which is very unusual for Callum Brae in Spring. 47 species in total.
