G'day Edwin,

Tonight's count was only 53? they must be on their way
to you eh? wouldn't it be great to know of the entire
route taken, the way they go up the Eastern Seaboard
by these beaut little ones eh? they seem to have a
good knack of flying in low light conditions? I think
I've found their local marker tree? they must use this
tree when flying in from Tassie? it's very very tall
here in Hastings, and as is now, very bright red with
flowers abounding it ..... a very very olde flowering
gum tree which when they reach it suddenly becomes
thee most noisey tree you have ever heard :^D they are
great little fella's that battle on despite what we
humans do to them eh?

Take Care and give me your snail mail addy again could
you .....

Have not seen them yet in Sydney.
