Great weekend, although perhaps next year won’t volunteer for so many longish walks! I walked 29kms over the two days. Highlights for me :
.seeing the peregrine chick at Red Rocks Gorge
.a couple of Painted Buttonquail at Glendale Depot (one seen, another heard)
.finding some Diuris orchids at Glendale Depot while trying to photograph the single rather shy White-winged Triller - buried in scrub on the ridge near the depot
.Southern Whiteface at Tharwa Sandwash, with large group of Red-browned Finches - not a species I’d seen there before

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.
