The Tuggeranong Hill Spring Woodland Survey was conducted on Wednesday 25 September.  It was a cool, clear, still morning, with an occasional light breeze.  A steady stream of flocks of up to 40 Yellow-faced Honeyeaters flew over in a WSW direction and some of them spent time in six out of seven of the sites, accompanied in one instance by a White-naped Honeyeater.  Other honeyeaters observed were Red Wattlebirds and one lone Noisy Friarbird.  The highlight of the morning was a pair of Nankeen Kestrels copulating at sub site 3.  Other breeding observations included an Australian Magpie nest with young, an Australian Raven carrying sticks and a pair of Rainbow Lorikeets sitting by a hollow. Sub-site 3 was the most active, with just nine species.  In all, 21 species were recorded during the survey periods, with a further 8 species seen or heard elsewhere on the Hill.
