Mount Bass Firetrail. RNP, Sydney

A couple of new ones went in the book today with Chestnut-rumped Heathwren (at last) and Yellow-tufted Honeyeater. I've been meaning to do the Mount Bass Firetrail in the Royal National Park for some time so when I was invited to join Martin [Cachard], Nikolas [Haass] and Raja [Stephenson] there for a Sunday Slaughnter I naturally accepted.

Birthday birdwatch

For this year's birthday birdwatch I stayed local. The weather wasn't kind (rain most of the day), but it was all worth it when it dried up just before owl O'clock and I had my best local view of a Barn Owl (Barling Pits) and a peach of a Short-eared Owl (Wakering stairs). Sorry no bird pics (sunset pic - Wakering, Fleet Head)
