A bit quiet to begin with, but after a while I managed to see of the summer migrants:

White-throated Gerygone
Western Gerygone
Tree Martin 
Fairy Martin (hawking over the paddocks at the north east corner (where the border path turns in) perhaps they have a colony in a culvert under the new Madura Road)
Horsfield's Bronze-Cuckoo (a pair on the eastern track)
Sacred Kingfisher (nr the dam in the south-eastern corner) NB it wasn't the Red-backed variety

I also heard Leaden Flycatchers

Also seen were:
A pair of Sparrowhawks circling together over the tree tops
A Wedge-tailed Eagle being severely harassed by many Magpies
A Superb Parrot (one male) flying north past the south-eastern corner

The Park is wonderfully wet.

Make nature great again.
