First Record – Very high on my want list I was not to hopeful as the mist and rain was keeping me confined to the carpark and toilet block area. It got quite dark when a bird landed in a bush right next to me. I could only just make it out and was surprised to find that it was a female Paradise Riflebird. The bird I had intended to search for had found me! A little while later the clouds cleared and I was rewarded with views of the stunning male as well.
