It has been particularly hard to see any birds, and I suspect that with all the rain still inland, there are plenty of competing attractions at present. However, a very unexpected sighting was when I looked for alien plants outside the fence, at the end of Morris Place, and disturbed a nightjar, either Mozambique or Fiery-necked. And then today I had my first view of a Spotted Ground-thrush, delayed because of my being overseas for two weeks. My brother said that he thought he had heard a second one call at the time I saw this. The place to look is around the map area, particularly across the main path to the left, if you are facing up the reserve.
At home two very vocal Red-capped Robin-chats are coexisting in the garden, and a Black-backed Puffback greets us every morning.
