This is a call to some of our north side Sydney
birdos or possibly Alan Morris or Lauris Hopkins if she is still out there
somewhere.Yesterday I was doing some birding around Warriwood wetland on the
north side of Sydney harbour when I heard what I was sure was a White-throated
Gerygone calling , it only called once but it had that distinctive falling
leaf call, I looked for the bird without any luck and after a while became
unsure as there are Brown Warblers in the area and I have never recorded a
WTG in this area, or in fact this close to the coast anywhere in Sydney. Heaps
out west but none around my way!---Anyone like to offer a comment?
Incidentally there were a couple of other good
birds about, 7 Latham's Snipe feeding on the mud at Katoa Close on Warriwood
wetland and a Powerful Owl on Mullet Creek upstream from Irrawong Reserve.
Mullet Creek flows into Warriwood wetland.
