Further to recent comment regarding movement of Brown Gerygone in late autumn/winter a small group have been present recently in (very) mixed woodland on the southern shore of Lake Burley Griffen in Canberra, Westbourne Woods to be precise. This is a very unusual event for this area and the habitat is a peculiar mixture of Pines, Hawthorn, Black Alder, Acaia sp and E. cinerea/paniculata. One is tempted to link this to the very dry coastal conditions east of here.
