Hello Carol,

Each year I look forward to the two bird movements, Spring and Autumn.
However, this Autumn has a fizzer for me, a little NW of Sydney.
The only migrants seen to date from casual daily observation have been as

Maybe a dozen Noisy Friarbirds.
Up to thirty or so Red Wattlebirds  
Ditto Little Wattlebirds
Six or seven Yellow faced Honeyeaters
No Whitenaped Honeyeaters.
No Rufous Fantails
Three or four Grey Fantails
One pair of Rose Robins
Three or four flocks of those "Mexican" Silvereyes, in lovely colour.

I hope others in the Sydney area have had a better Autumn than I have.
