While "Pluggers" objective yesterday was to get the magic 1300 (and he did!!), mine and David's objective was to get the Pink Robin at Tallaganda SF (between Batesman Bay and Canberra) on the Great Dividing Range. The birds proved rather quite in this damp and cold winter day, but we saw several Olive Whistlers including a male and female close to the ground within 5 metres away (male with a grey head and the female a brown head). Several Yellow-tailed Black-cockatoos were feeding among the pine plantations there but no Pink Robins or any of the red robins.
We also tried at nearby Monga SF (about 15-20 km east of Braidwood, on the road to Batesman Bay) but again without success. This however is an exceptionally beautiful place to visit for its scenery. With very tall Eucalypts and masses of huge tree ferns, It made up for the lack of good birds.
