The survey was carried out by Michael Lenz on 3 October 22 on a calm, overcast morning, clouds only clearing towards the end of the survey. The ground vegetation was in many parts very dense, tall and weedy. The most widespread species were Crimson Rosella (at 8 of 9 Sites), Noisy Miner (7) and Eastern Rosella (5). Overall higher numbers of Rufous Whistler, Grey Shrikethrush and Noisy Friarbird were present than in recent years, notably Leaden Flycatcher seems to have declined sharply (only found at one spot). Of interest also: 3 Shining Bronze Cuckoos, including a pair together, Brown Goshawk, Dollarbird, both species of Gerygone, but only a few ground-foraging birds. 30 species were recorded at sites and a further12 in between sites.
