Masked Woodswallow (Pat McConnell & Kath O'Donnell)

In 2006, we set up the inaugral Challenge to see if we could collectively record 250 species during the year in the club's survey area. How did we go? Extremely well considering the drought... Plenty of unusual and rare birds .... some great records from non-members too. It was a fascinating year. And a worthwhile exercise which we encourage other groups to follow. See for yourself...

Masked Woodswallow (Pat McConnell & Kath O'Donnell)

After much searching, Pat & Kath found a single Masked Woodswallow amongst a large flock of White-browed Woodswallows on Thomas Rd south of Murphy's Ck last Sunday (29/10) on the October Species Census.

They also found Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters in the same area, a new location for this seldom seen species, in our survey area.

Well done!
