2 Red-rumped Parrots were flying over the Flame Robin paddocks down Shangri la Rd mid-afternoon Sunday. Bird 167. I've been waiting for RRPs to show up. Not sure how numerous they are in the Southern Highlands - I've had them on the outskirts of Moss Vale. Other species of note down Shangri la were: 8 Buff-rumped Thornbills, Scarlet Robin (male), Rose Robin (male; returned), Black-fronted Dotterel, Little Black Cormorant, Yellow-faced Honeyeater (2 feeding on ground with party of Yellow-rumped Thornbills) and a White-throated Treecreeper foraging on a wall for two minutes (never seen this before).
