On Friday 31 March, Barbara Allan and I visited the Majura Defence Training Area for the quarterly COG Woodland Survey. It was a beautiful autumn morning, slightly chilly at 7 degrees for our start at 7.30am, but sunny and clear. At the last survey in November the wildflowers were a real treat, but this time it was the turn of the trees to be in blossom.

We recorded 48 species at the seven sites we surveyed, with highlights being a White-necked Heron at a small dam, multiple Scarlet Robins including a juvenile, and a young Speckled Warbler being fed by an adult. Honeyeater species were not in short supply and included Brown-headed, White-plumed, White-eared and Yellow-faced as well as Noisy Friarbird, Red Wattlebird, a few Noisy Miners and one Eastern Spinebill. 

We look forward to the next survey in June.
