Mon 22Musk, Rainbow, Scaly-breasted and Little Lorikeets, Noisy Friarbirds
Coffs Coast
Mass flowering of Blackbutt and Forest Red Gum from Coffs Harbour north to Corindi Beach attracting thousands of lorikeets and Noisy Friarbirds. Impossible to accurately estimate numbers but I would hazard a guess that there would be >10,000 birds in this area at present. In just 15 minutes late on Sunday afternoon I counted well over 500 Musk Lorikeets flying south over the Arrawarra rest area. I’d think there’s a good chance of Swift Parrots being in the area somewhere.

Sun 21highlightGlossy Black Cockatoo- breeding
private property SE of Condobolin
There are seven adult birds currently living in this area and three pairs have nests. Saw today for the first time a chick in one nest . This chick will fledge in the next week and then all the birds dissappear to areas unknown. Four pairs nested here last year in hollows of River Redgums along Wallaroi Ck

Thu 18highlightWhite-winged Chough
Truganina, Wyndham (Werribee)
One White-winged Chough recorded alongside Skeleton Creek between Sussex Court and St Nicholas Court. This is my first record in over 35 years of this species in this area. A very unusual record away from Serendip Sanctuary, You Yangs and Brisbane Ranges.
