For a bit of a change, I went for a stroll/swim through Northbrook Gorge
[NW Mt Glorious in Bne Forest Park] with Leanne and our friend Ritchie. 
We found a dead riflebird in the gully leading to Northbrook Creek,
observed a few logrunners doing that, and flushed a few topknots and the
odd wompoo near our morning tea spot on the Ck.  The atlassing highlight
was a grey goshawk sitting on a rock in the middle of the creek about 15
mins upstream of the gorge.  Passing through the gorge involves a couple
of swims - the water temperature was lovely.  Got to see a few
spectacled monarchs in place of the usual black faced, and listed a
silent pitta about 10 mins from the road.
