A couple of interesting sightings in Centennial Park on Sunday 11 Mar
between 8.15 and 10.30am.

1 adult with 2 begging juvenile Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos in the
pine groves on the Randwick Racecourse side - my first city sightings
this season (last 4 years living locally they seem to have arrived in E
Suburbs and inner city in March). Nearby flushed 2 Brown Quail - not
sure if they are regulars in the park, this was my first sighting here.
A Brown Goshawk was hunting around the main pond.

Not sure if Greenfinch are still seen here? Looked in pine areas but
none seen/heard. Waterbirds not in impressive numbers perhaps after
recent rains in many parts of the State - only a few Hardhead and
Chestnut Teal present, no Musk Duck seen. Flock of 28 Pelicans on main
pond, 1 Intermediate Egret, 3 Black-fronted Dotterels.

Large numbers of the resident tortoise species visible at the back of
the larger ponds - 12 in one side pond - as water levels still low.

2 Spangled Drongos seen at La Perouse later in the day.
