Hi All,

This is a belated post on my birding experience on the Australia Day weekend.  I was lucky enough to be able to fly down to Sydney to visit family, and while I was there I made the most of it and was shown around Royal National Park by Ricki Coughlan.

All I can say is that I was blown away!  We had Superb Lyrebirds scratching around our feet (and flying over our heads), Rockwarblers crawling up rocks mere metres away, Southern Emu-Wrens skulking in bushes at an arms-length, and the best views of Beautiful Firetails you could ever hope for.  We also had great views of White's Skinks, Copper-tailed Skinks, and one slothful Red-bellied Black Snake that just crawled along with his beautiful crimson belly shining in the sun.

All in all a very enjoyable weekend's birding, with the Rockwarbler being a tick for me.
