Bell Miner, RNP



I found this Bell Miner along Lady Carrington Drive today. Although this species' range includes territories around Sydney I've never heard of them being reported in RNP. There is also no mention of them in Steve Anyon-Smith's 'Birdwatching in Royal & Heathcote National Parks'. Are there are any RNP patch watchers out there that think this sighting is unusual - or boring?

The Atlas of Living Australia is a good resource for locality records. According to this map, Bell miner is quite unusual for the RNP. There's a 2007 record from Engadine, not much else.

Just discovered your blog by the way; I like it a lot.
