Neville,you don't tell us where you are at....I spend a fair bit of time
dagging around Rushworth in central Victoria.In the past Noisy
Friarbirds in particular and to a lesser extent Little Lorikeets turn up
in May/June to feast on the Red Ironbark blooms.This year the ironbarks
are rather slow getting off the mark so consequently NFB's have not yet
arrived & LL's are in low numbers.The NFB's may not even turn up,I'm
waiting with bated breath.Don't tell me you've pinched all our birds!?
