Hi everyone,

Checked out Goschen Flora Reserve and Tresco West over the weekend. All the summer migrants have departed but there were some interesting birds at both sites...

Several Mallee spp. were in flower, attracting large numbers of Spiny-cheeked, Singing and White-plumed Honeteater. White-fronted Honeyeater was also reasonably common there was a single Striped Honeyeater at Tresco.

Interestingly, there was a very high number of Blue Bonnet (especially Tresco) which have obviously had a bumper breeding year.

There was a Gull-billed Tern at Lake Boga and a pair of Freckled Duck and a Great-crested Grebe at Round Lake nearby.

I stopped in at Lake Tutchewop as Rufous Fieldwren is a possibility (no luck), but there were several parties of White-winged Fairywren.
