18/12/20 Fauna survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
We were up early today, looking for platypus on a 2km stretch of Woori Yallock Creek. No platypus, but our 'wow' moments? Two Sacred Kingfishers, an Azure Kingfisher and a Southern Boobook all in a couple of minutes, plus a fabulous moth which iNaturalist enabled me to ID as Epidesmia chilonaria. Beautiful markings. The Boobook was being harassed for well over an hour by a group of Honeyeaters - they clearly weren't happy about it being there, but we thought it was pretty cool!
