YTBC's have been around Somers (a mere 10kms from Hastings) since July
1999 in considerable numbers. We had a group of seven descend on the Hakea
bushes in our garden and prune them very effectively. Our two local wedge
tailed eagles came to invstigate and were seen off in no uncertain terms.

We have recently observed YTBC's at Waratah Bay.
