The 2017 list is now up to 176 species. The April – May records are:
Kingfisher Park and Julatten area
Double-eyed (Macleay's) Fig-parrot
Little (Gould's) Bronze-cuckoo
Eastern Reef Egret
Obviously I've been late in spotting some of the really common species, such as nankeen kestrel, olive-backed sunbird and pheasant coucal. But these things happen.
If things go to plan, by the end of June, I should be well past 200 species. But I'm not going to count birds before they're ticked.
