Tuggeranong Hill was surveyed on Wednesday, 8 December.  It was overcast, with rain threatening throughout the morning.  The changes in vegetation in many of the sites over the last 14 years is amazing!  Undergrowth has become very dense in some of them, to the point where they are un-recognisable. It seemed that it was a very active morning, but the species tally was only average.  Breeding records were:  Yellow-rumped Thornbill, Australian Magpie and Pied Currawong feeding young; begging Rainbow Lorikeet and a Satin Bowerbird hopping about and calling by a dense pile of twigs in dense undergrowthOther highlights were two Common Bronzewings and an Olive backed Oriole in sub-sites, and a Collared Sparrowhawk between sites.  Twenty species were observed during the surveys, and an additional 15 between sub-sites.
