Hi all
I spent from 7-9am walking parts of the Great North Walk and STEP track in the 
Upper Lane Cove Valley this morning (20 December). Highlight was a single 
Bassian Thrush seen foraging in the Great North Walk just north of Browns 
Waterhole approx 8:30am.  There were lost of Scarlet Honeyeaters along the 
track as well as 3 Rufous Fantails and the more common species that I'd expect 
to see.  A colony of Bell Miners has taken up residence in the area around 
Browns Waterhole, which is new since my last visit (some time in 2014 
admittedly).  There were no Gang-gangs seen or heard – although it is entirely 
possible that the Sulphur-crested Cockatoos drowned out anything else as they 
were particularly loud this morning.  Are there still a small number of 
Gang-gangs resident in the upper Lane Cove Valley or if I want to get one on my 
2015 list do I need to go a bit further afield?
