Andrea, from Griffith University, has reported that two Spectacled Monarchs Monarcha trivigatus were sighted  on the mountain over a couple of days last week. They’re normally found in wet forest and rainforest, so this is an unexpected sighting.

Andrea is keen to know if there have been any other sightings of this special bird. Please email any sightings of Monarchs to  – photos are great however even date, time and approximate location are valuable.

Other wildlife sightings are also welcome: like the Koala Amanda spotted crossing the Motorway onramp last week. He made it safely across the road and quickly climbed the nearest tree.
