The last few weeks have been good for bird sightings at the Distillery Creek picnic area. Satin Flycatchers have returned to breed in the area – see a male in full cry below. This photo was taken at the Distillery Creek ‘pond’, a great place for those who like to sit and have the birds come to them!
The excited calls of Rufous Whistlers are back, as well as the insistent calling of cuckoos. Also present: determined Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, swooping Dusky Woodswallows and occasional zebra-faced Eastern Shrike-tits.
