Every year I see between 90 and 110 species at this sight. Shame to see it go to an embassy precinct ( horse owners have been given 2 yr notice and start 30 day period for submission is imminent). Had an interview with Ian Bushnell from RiotACT on Friday (see link) and  ABC television yesterday (possibly screening Thur evening news). 

By way of example this season White-winged Trillers (up to 13) were present from September to January with a late individual heading north on 23rd April. Previously recorded for 24 of the past 27 years at this GBS site.

All up 169 species. Quite a few (13) vulnerable species one critically endangered (Swift Parrot in supurb albiet).

Thank you for your support.
