Dear All,
Went down to McGraths Hill this morning and saw a couple of interesting things....12 Pink-Eared Ducks, 20 Shoveler, no less than 27 Baillon's Crakes, and 3 Spotted Crakes, and also a not so regular Buff-Banded Rail, 1 Glossy Ibis, 20 odd Sharp-Tailed Sandpipers, both the Grassbirds, 4 Long-billed Corellas (local feral population), plus the regular finches (Nutmeg, Chestnut-Breasted, and Goldfinch). Saw 56 species in total this morning at this location.
Also in the area....a Grey Goshawk (grey morph) seen in trees behind small lake just before the Mitchell Park junction along the Pitt Town - Wisemans Ferry Rd. Little Corella was also in the same area.
Mitchell Park was still closed due to bush fire danger and Pitt Town Lagoon was completely dry!
