Hi all
After recent reports of great birding around Wymlet Tank nr Ouyen, Vic, I went for a look on 22-23/9. This is an excellent area of mallee and the tank had plenty of water from recent rains. I recorded around 50sp in a 10km radius of the tank. Highlights (for me)included Pink Cockatoo (10), Regent Parrot (5), Mulga Parrot, White-fronted Honeyeater, "yellow-rumped" Spotted Pardalote, Southern Scrub-robin, Splendid Wren, mallee form of Grey Currawong, Masked Woodswllow and Crested Bellbird. Best of all were three separate male Red-lored Whistlers singing that I found along the Honeymoon Hut track between 6 and 9km west of Wymlet Tank and a Malleefowl near Macarthur Trig.
