Mount Molloy 2

In the afternoon, I headed back south to Lake Mitchell to have a look for some finches. I did not find any other than Double-barred Finches. Hmm , as a matter of fact I did not see much at all. Once more and big DOH!! After that I went up the road to the Big Mitchell River but saw absolutely nothing. There was plenty of grass but no finches. In the morning I went once again to the Rifle Creek Rest Area just north of Mount Molloy. More rainforest birds and a severe lack of light.
