White-throated Robin still at the Petrified Forest and certainly more shrikes, flycatchers, etc. and herons today.

Petrified Forest
Male again at the Petrified Forest Park at 12.30pm (very briefly) and then seen very well from 5.30pm today.

The park is closed tomorrow but the bird was viewable fro the main road this evening.

Park at the end of road by centre as normal. Walk back up the road and at c.200m look right in to park and for square concrete building with some tall, thin cyprus firs by it. The robin was feeding on the ground below these firs and bushes either side.
