We went on a recce to Glen Davis, 3 hours west of Sydney, New South Wales
yesterday.  We saw Regent honeyeaters in blossom between Glen Alice and
Rylstone and we Plum-headed Finches along the road in from Capertee.  There
seems to be a lot of blossom in the valley.

At the Glenolan Road bridge we failed to see the Regents there but had
White-backed Swallows with Tree & Fairy Martins and Welcome Swallows in a
tight group at eye level.  It was great to stand amongst them.

We saw one Peregrine at Goolloolinboin, and had an amazing sight of a
headless rabbit dropping on the roadway near us and a young Brown Falcon
flying away. The rabbit was gone later. We saw several Wedge-tailed Eagles
as well.

There is a lot more of the road sealed now and properties changing hand and
people occupying land we never saw a soul on once. Let's hope they don't
chop anymore trees down.

Good birding everyone
