Hello all,
I took a morning walk in Barren Grounds Nature Reserve this morning
(10km west of Jamberoo, 120km south of Sydney) - and had a real
treat just in the 1km from the Lodge to the Stone Bridge turnoff. There
are zillions of honeyeaters (mainly New Holland, Yellow-faced and
spinebills - but several others in smaller numbers) - the Heath Banksia
looks as though it is in for a bumper year.
Also 4 bristlebirds - including one that ran up too close to focus, and
at least 10 Beautiful Firetails feeding on the track. A Lewin's Rail was
calling close by - and last week I had a Ground Parrot in full view in
the middle of the track - and a couple of Bassian Thrushes.
This is a great time of the year to visit the reserve.
