21/09/22 Bird, Platypus & Frog survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
Our bird, platypus and frog survey had all of this and more today. Two sightings of a platypus, approx 2 hours apart (plus a photograph this time!!), 42 species of birds and 1 species of frog calling (Common Eastern Froglet). That's got to count as a good morning out :)
Four new people to our surveys were warmly welcomed. It's always a joy to meet new people and share the joys of the bush, laughter and the easy conversation and company of like-minded people.
Some bird highlights? A pair of Black Swans with a signet, a Pelican flying overhead (2 water birds we don't often see), a Fan-tailed Cuckoo sitting for ages on the fence letting us get a good look, 6 species of honeyeater, and so much more!
How good is this group of people?! What a joy to be out in the reserve with them all today.
