While I was cleaning up my termite infested timber pile, I came upon a Spotted Python ( Antaresia maculosa...

7 GBC's at Flagstone Ck

Hello People Yesterday (17.01.09) I first heard, then counted, seven Glossy Black's flying over Flagstone Creek Road about 500m east of my house. I also heard a pair flying along Flagstone Creek on the 15.01.09 . They are never noisy, but they do let out a mournful cry every so often. I have no doub...

Hello,

A Restless Flycatcher was seen by me at Meadows Road, Withcott on Sunday afternoon (30 March 2008). It was singing (or chirruping) in a nearby tree while we were eating lunch.

Glossy Blacks at Flagstone Ck

A quick note to say that if you haven't ticked off a Glossy Black-cockatoo for this year, then head down to my place at the corner of Flagstone Creek Road and Upper Flagstone Creek Road. There has been a pair and their single immature young bird feeding on the Allo-casuarina glauca trees. My drivewa...

Australian Owlet-nightjar at Flagstone Ck

Hello All

On Sunday evening just gone - 24/02/08 - at about 9 pm I heard the nightjar make its familiar three even cherr notes just outside near my house.

Not sure Mick of the rules for recording a species on the Challenge, as I didn't go spotlighting for a visual observation.

Sulphur-crested Cockies

As far as the Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are concerned, there is a resident flock of around 18-20 birds in Flagstone Creek valley. They regularly act as my alarm clock at day break when they fly into the trees outside my bedroom window and start their screeching. I'd have to say that these guys are a...

Rufous Fantail at Queen Mary Falls

Hi Michael

I was out at Queen Mary Falls today and saw a Rufous Fantail out there as well. I note that it was included on the recent outing list.

Also saw two Eastern Spinbills and a Grey Goshawk was also perched in one of the Hoop Pine Trees in the gorge there.

All and all, a good day out.

Rainbow Bee-eaters Aplenty at Withcott

Hi People Yesterday after picking my kids up from school at Withcott, I went my usual way home past the Childcare Centre heading south. Here I came upon a flock of 50+ (most likely a vast underestimate) Rainbow Bee-eaters flying in a group in a paddock with Casurinas. It was more like a swarm then a...
