Thanks to a few people who responded to my RFI for spots to bird around Canberra, I spent a couple of hours this morning at Mulligan's Flat Nature Reserve in the north of Canberra. My hopes weren't high as it was extremely windy so seeing or hearing birds was difficult. Heaps of kangaroos around. Managed to find some more sheltered bush not far past the information board and ran into a feeding party of lots of small birds which was great.
Species seen in the 2 hours:
Crimson Rosella
Rufous Whistler
Golden Whistler
Spotted Pardalote
Buff-rumped Thornbill (heaps and they came to within a couple of metres of me!)
Grey Fantail
White-throated Treecreeper
White-throated Gerygone
White-winged Chough
Grey Currawong

All in all a much more productive walk than i first thought it would be. Certainly added a couple of nice birds to my year list.

Other birds of interest over the weekend were 3 Gang gangs at the Federal Golf Club on Saturday and a pair of Wedge-tailed Eagles above the freeway leaving Canberra.

Thanks again to those that helped out.
