> Hi all
> suffering from a heavy cold, but not wanting to waste a great day in Sydney,
> I visited the above site this morning for a short walk. It also has a
> reasonable playground for my kids in a clearing where I could sit quietly
> (well apart from the sneezing anyway) and watch the birds. As a bonus,
> (although I was not aware of this at the time I decided to go there) a pair
> of Glossy Blacks reported on BirdlineNSW by B Ayres on 22 Aug was still
> present (at NW end of Browns Track near Lamberts Clearing) feeding mostly
> quietly and not fussed by us. There was the usual chomping of casuarina
> nuts, but occasionally the male would make a quiet screeching call. Watched
> the pair for about 10 mins before going back to the visitor centre and
> caught up with some US birders (who had seen the birdline report) and
> directed them to the pair.
> Also several Golden Whistlers singing and calling well around Lamberts
> clearing and various honeyeaters all very active.
> Also saw a large goanna and a Diamond Python (my attention drawn to both by
> alarm calls from honeyeaters).
