There used to be a noticeable  number of usually Yellowfaced and Whitenaped
HE's Silvereyes with a
sprinkling of other species moving north up the valley behind my house in
suburban St Ives in Sydney's north. For the past four years at least, most
of the activity seems to be directed up the inland mountainous country, with
 fewer birds taking the coastal route  which is possibly becoming less
hospitable as the years go by. I wonder whether this is just a local change
or is apparent in the wider picture?

Here in Cooranbong (~120 km N of Sydney) we have had very few Yellow-faced
Honeyeaters moving through this year. Just a few small groups. Lots fewer
than usual
