Hi all
went for a walk along the above track today with some friends and small
children.  It was a great day for a walk in Sydney and the birds were very
busy - there were lots of birds, even if not a huge range of species.
Plenty of honeyeaters - large numbers of Yellow Faced, New Holland, White
Cheeked, White Eared, Red and Little Wattlebirds and E Spinebill. One flock
of Brown Headed (about 10-12 birds) and some small groups of White Napeds.
A single Scarlet and a Crescent (can't recall ever having seen one in
Ku-Rin-Gai before), plus Noisy Friarbirds and Noisy Miners at the Salvation
Creek Picnic area makes 13 honeyeater species - not bad.

However, whilst lagging behind watching the Brown Headeds, the rest of the
party disturbed "a small fat brown bird with a stick up tail" - the
description sounded like a Chestnut Rumped Heathwren to me, but attempts to
lure it back failed dismally so I'll never know.
