The autumn survey at the nine sites on the lower eastern slopes of Mt Ainslie was carried out on 3 April 2023 by Robin Hide and Michael Lenz. It was an overcast and calm day. Birdlife was VERY quiet.The most widespread species were Noisy Miner (at 6 sites), Crimson Rosella and Spotted Pardalote (each at 5 sites). Three to six species were recorded at sites, only the last one had higher numbers with 11 species. Many smaller bush birds were either missing or present in small numbers/at a few sites only. Species of note included Mistletoebird, Western Gerygone, Speckled Warbler and Rufous Whistler. Honeyeaters were presented by Noisy Miners and a lone Yellow-faced Honeyeater.
It was good to see that many mistletoes had recovered and were covered in fresh foliage.
