Hi all


It was indeed an excellent weekend.  Amazing how the weather goes from too cold to too hot in an instance – I certainly got a touch of the sun on Vanity’s Crossing Road on Saturday morning. And thanks for the reminder to share eBird lists with COG Blitz.


Some highlights for David D and myself were Emu and Great Crested Grebe, but I dipped on Chestnut-rumped Heathwren at Bluetts.

Hi Nicki,


thanks for the reminder to share eBird lists with COG Blitz.


My highlight for the weekend's birding was a Rose Robin on nest. See attached photo.

After a fairly dour forecast early last week, the weather gods shone for us on the weekend. Thank you to everyone who participated in the Blitz, whether it was in your backyard, the local park or distant Namadgi. It was just lovely to be out after the restrictions of the last few months.


The eBird lists have been flowing in. I haven’t had time to trawl through them yet but if you have a special moment or bird, feel free to share it. One of my first birds when I stepped outside on Saturday morning was a Scarlet Honeyeater – not a bad way to start any day but especially a Blitz weekend.


Keep the lists coming if you are still to enter them (share with COG Blitz), or post datasheets to PO Box 348 Jamison Centre, or send an email with your results.
