Hi again,

Our first (and last to date) Golden Whistler had a lazy 20min bath/preen 
on 2nd April and the Rufous Whistlers have also not been heard or seen 
since 4th April.  Grey Shrike-thrush have also gone or became silent.

The Scarlet Robins are still here each day - don't know if they are 
staying here or being replaced by new ones but the numbers seen do seem 
to vary whatever that might mean!

I think that the last Bee-eaters went through on 28th March (although I 
may have heard some on 8 April - when I tried to check I couldn't see any 
and the crickets were very noisy).  Never saw any heading north; they 
always went either east or west from here.

Two Common Bronzewing were seen for the first time on 9th April and one 
the next day.  Do they migrate?
