There are two clearings near the car park and toilets at Wattamolla in the
Royal National Park, just south of Sydney. The grasses are seeding and Steve
Anyon-Smith and I along with two visitors from the USA saw up to eight
Beautiful Firetails with several Red-browed Firetails.  Also a covey of
about 16 Brown Quail were out in the open feeding on the seeds.  Three
Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos put on a good flight show for our American
visitors as well. Steve thought the grass seeds would improve in the next
fortnight.  I was able to get quite close with a camera so there may be an
opportunity for other photographers.

In the Wattle Forest were four Crested Shrike Tits feeding very low down in
the rainforest.
