Hi Birders,
On a bleak saturday afternoon with a southerly gale blowing here at Murray Street, Bateau Bay, the numbers of Swift Parrots present still continues to rise with  at least 90 seen this afternoon, and 80-100 around Sutton Reserve  and Wyrrrabalong NP Picnic Area near Reserve Drive, Bateau Bay this morning!
This is certainly the highest number seen on the Central Coast in recent years. Two other Swift Parrots were heard at Tuggerah STW on the northern side where the flowerinfg Swamp Mahogany is located.
40 Swamp Mahogany sites will be surveyed this coming weekend on the Central Coast by members of the Central Coast Group of Birding NSW. With Regent Honeyeaters already known from 2 sites and Swift Parrots from 3 sites, things are looking good, except for the weather!
