A relaxing weekend at Broadwater Park, approximately 45km by road from
Ingham NQ (latitude 18*30'S).  Here patches of rainforest and monsoon vine
forest are protected within the "Wet Tropics" WHA and the birding is glorious.

Best birds:

orange footed scrub fowl                        lewins honeyeater
wompoo pigeon                                   yellow spotted honeyeater
pale yellow robin                               graceful honeyeater
eastern yellow robin                            dusky honeyeater
grey headed robin                               macleays honeyeater
bowers shrike-thrush                            variegated triller
little shrike-thrush                            rufous fantail
yellow breasted boatbill                        northern fantail
pied monarch                                    large billed scrub wren
spectacled monarch                              victoria's riflebird

The 'raptor run" to and from Ingham was quiet compared to previous weeks;
with only brown falcon, black, whistling, brahminy and black-shouldered
kites in evidence; but there was an unusually large number of blue winged
kookaburras  stationed along the power lines.
