A beautiful morning with the Bellingen Birders, no smoke!
Around 260 Little Black Cormorants flew over in waves
Little Egret and Royal Spoonbill. A Ruddy Turnstone was around rare for Urunga

We saw very few insects, Hardly any butterflies. Jeff Sparrow writes, ‘The humming of Christmas beetles was once a sign of the season. Where have they gone?‘
