The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period 
Monday, July 25, 2022 to Sunday, July 31, 2022:

Area: SA

Date: Sunday, July 24, 2022

Location: On our Rockleigh property

Collared Sparrowhawk (Accipiter cirrocephalus) (1) Species number 92 on our 
piece of heaven ! I heard a call I didn't recognise though it sounded 
raptore-ish, saw the bird flying, and it looked like a small raptore, and 
listening to sparrowhawk calls on ebird confirmed the ID.
It could have been species 93. Last week Pete saw an emu in the adjoining 
reserve, standing next to our fence. He told me he didn't try to herd it in 
through our gate. I wonder why not.
After a long drought, that is (almost) 3 new species in the last couple of 
months. The spoggies seemed to like their new home and turn up every time we 
do, very shy though. Despite the tally of 92 it is a very rare weekend that 
more than 25 species are spotted. 15 is a more usual number. This was a good 
weekend - 23 species.
