This is really the week for Grey Goshawks  ..this morning I walked up from
Bulgo to Otford at the southern end of Royal National Park, Sydney and as I
emerged from the secondary rainforest there in front of me was a white phase
grey goshawk ... it flew close above, the dived into the canopy. A short
time later four TopKnot pigeons flew from that location above the canopy
below me in the opposite direction.
As my wife emerged she also had a smile on her face. She had had a lengthy
close-up view of a Green Catbird under the canopy. It had not called. Its
mouth was stuffed with a red berry.
A most pleasant morning walk ... from Otford, down to Werrong, along the
rocky foreshore to Bulgo and up the hill. In terms of park management does
anyone know of a successful way to treat crofton weed. Both slopes are
covered with it and it is getting well out of hand.
