Hi Birders
I read with interest Alan's synopsis of YFHE migration north of the Hunter Valley.  Here, in Wallsend, just to the north of Mt Sugarloaf, YFHE's appear to be moving in a steady stream in a south-west to north-east direction.  The birds appear to be coming from Mt Sugarloaf across to the the Minmi/Maryland corridor.  The highest abundance of birds was about 2-3 weeks ago, however, there are still relatively moderate numbers of YFHE's moving through in the past few days.  There have been large numbers of YFHE's moving through the Wetlands Centre site at nearby Shortland and up to the Maitland area. There has also been large flocks of Silvereyes moving through as well.
