The nine sites on Mt Majura Nature Reserve were conducted over 3 days, 3-5 December. Conditions were mostly windy and cool. The bush is looking very dry and overgrazed in most areas although a few Yellowbox and Kurrajong were flowering. We saw plenty of Eastern Grey Kangaroos, Swamp Wallabies, a few rabbits and a single fox – all using the habitat. There was a marked lack of small birds in the survey sites, although larger birds such as Noisy Friarbirds and Red Wattlebirds were quite active. Unfortunately, we didn’t record any Speckled Warblers, which we normally get in a couple of sites and not a single pardalote, although we heard one or two further afield. In between sites we came across a small mixed flock with a few small birds such as Buff-rumped and Brown Thornbill, Grey Fantail and 4 White-winged Trillers. The only small birds recorded in the sites were Weebill, a single Grey Fantail and 2 Superb Fairywrens. A total of 26 Species were recorded.
