14/11/22 Bird & Frog survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
The expected wet weather didn't come on our bird survey (that was a bonus), but we came prepared with gumboots, and we definitely needed them. The ground is still sodden from a few months of wet weather, so any rain causes low points to fill with water, and flow. In cool, but not cold, mostly overcast conditions, our citizen science team of 11 people recorded 43 species of birds, 2 frog species, 2 Swamp Wallabies and a couple of beautiful butterflies that I'm sure were wondering what happened to summer. Or was that just us? A great morning, as always, with fabulous people. And the Christmas biscuits, and rum-n-raisin chocolate with plenty of rum were pretty good too :)
Some highlights? A pair of Gang-gang Cockatoos, Dusky Woodswallows, Sacred Kingfisher, Swamp Harrier... and everything else!
