On Saturday I was doing a little birding in Beni State Forest, just to the east of Dubbo.  

Primarily birds that you would expect in this ironbark/callitris forest.  Western Gerygone, Speckled Warbler, Ducky Woodswallow, White-browed flying over, Inland Thornbill, Rufous Songlark, White-winged Triller etc etc etc.

One surprise, however, was a Rufous Fantail.  I might expect a wayward bird out this way on autumn migration (and one was found last autumn by a NPWS survey team near Cobar!) but this is not only an interesting location but a very interesting time of year.

Jude.  Any other Dubbo records that you are aware of.
