 Hi Netters,
       As it was too hot and quiet on Sunday for sea-birding, Steve and me
decided to sit on chairs under the shade in Wattle Flat in the Royal N/P
south west of Sydney.
       Numerous birds were there. Along came two Yellow-throated Scrubwrens,
one was displaying. We were surprised to hear the bird do an excellent mimic
of a Golden Whistler and a good attempt at a Whipbird. Two Brown Warblers
were attending a nest.
       Ern Hoskin, who turned 86 after Xmas, led the 25 birders on the
NSWFOC outing on Saturday in Centennial Park. Highlights seen during the
day, 2nd nesting record of Musk Duck with two chicks. In a concrete drain
were Fairy Martins attending 7 mud nests. 5 Frogmouth. Darter with 3 young
in the nest. Peregrine Falcon and Collared Sparrowhawk.
       Tony can you shoo the Scarlet-chested Parrots towards Gluepot please
as my old car may make it to there.

All the Best
