Inger and all,

I agree about Mt Solitary. The western end is covered with a forest of Allocasuarina littoralis (from memory) and I've often seen Glossies there. The "summit" is actually a 4km-long plateau so even if it's windy and cold there are gullies and sheltered spots, including some well-used camping caves. Spotted Quail-thrush and Owlet-nightjar are other nice species I've seen up there. Thanks Inger for mentioning it.

For those of you adventurous birding types, the summit of Mount Solitary directly across the valley from where Carol was is a good place to see Glossy Black Cockatoos. The summit is crowned with She Oaks and the Glossies are mad for the seeds they find in them up there.

A bit too windy and cold for much else around the summit though!

Cheers,  Inger Vandyke
