The spring survey of the nine sites on the lower eastern slopes of Mt Ainslie was conducted on 21 September 2022 by Michael Lenz. It was overcast, calm for a long period, later just light wind. Notable is the poor state of many mistletoes. Many areas of the ground are very weedy. The most widespread species were Crimson Rosella (8 sites), followed by Weebill (6), Spotted Pardalote and Noisy Miner (5 each). Spring arrivals included Shining Bronze-Cuckoo, Western and White-throated Gerygone, Olive-backed Oriole, Rufous Whistler, Mistletoebird. A few Noisy Friarbirds, Yellow-faced and White-naped Honeyeaters were passing through. Other species of interest included Varied Sittella, Speckled Warbler, a pair of Little Ravens at their nest and a Brown Goshawk, and for the first time a Common Blackbird was singing near one of the sites. 36 species were observed at sites, with another 14 in between sites.
