Some months ago there was an inconclusive discussion about numbers of
Bee-eaters being low in the south east. It's now June and I hardly noticed
Bee-eaters passing through Townsville on northward migration during april
and May. Sure, Bee-eaters were common and you could not fail to find one if
you looked. But I did not notice the noisey bouncing flocks of hundreds and
thousands that usually pass through Townsville in autumn. Has anyone else
noticed a lackof migrating Bee-eaters? Alas, I don't have any quantitative
data. I wonder if Ian Clayton made any counts before scooting off to the Cape?
