Yesterday’s bitter southerly was a taste of winter. I’m not quite ready for it just yet!
It’s not all bad however, as we can look forward to the arrival of a suite of birds from other locales, that choose to spend the cooler seasons in the box-ironbark country.
One of these species is the Flame Robin which typically arrives locally in late April. Yesterday afternoon I spotted a handful of ‘brown birds’ along Mia Mia track and then glimpsed a couple of lovely male birds in their company. I’ve been expecting them, but suspect these individuals are heading further north to the riverine plains.
Watch out in coming weeks for Eastern Spinebill, Swift Parrot and Rose Robin.
