The winter survey of the 9 sites on the lower western slopes of Mt Majura was carried out by Peter Miller. Weather was mild but windy. Birds both large and small were few and far between, a total of only 16 species were recorded over the 9 sites with an additional 6 species recorded between sites.  It was interesting to note that in last year’s June survey, several pairs of Australian Wood Ducks were very vocal and inspecting nest hollows whereas this year no Australian Wood Ducks were recorded on any of the sites although 2 pairs were observed on a small dam between survey sites. The only nesting behaviour observed was a single pair of Galahs inspecting a hollow between sites.

Highlights included: an accipter (sp? Brown Goshawk or Collared Sparrowhawk)) seen very briefly above site 3. Woodland birds recorded included Grey Butcherbird, Striated Pardalote, Weebill, and Brown Thornbill
