A quick walk alongside the Nepean at around 1 deg C. last Thursday morning
produced a good crop of 'Winter' birds.
50+ Red-whiskered Bulbuls
Flock of Red-browed Finches
Large numbers of Supurb Fairy-Wrens, a lot of males in blue plumage, some
with blue feathers starting to show.
15 approx. Olive-backed Orioles, unusual for here, I have only seen pairs in
the past.
1 Peregrine Falcon, made a diving pass then settled on top of a poplar tree.
1 Royal Spoonbill wading in a small swamp.
1 pair of Rose Robins
2 Eastern Spine-bills (plus one in my garden this week, a first for that
Flock of European Goldfinches feeding on a tree where they seem to winter
every year.
