Hi Everyone,
Red Wattlebirds are resident in many parts of the NSW Coast, Tablelands and Slopes but they also migrate northwards along the coast from southern NSW and Victoria in autumn, and migrate from the high mountain forests of the Great Divide to the coastal forests and to the woodlands of the tablelands and slopes in autums as well. The movement appears to be quite complex but the large flocks moving northwards in April-May, and moving to the flowering box and ironbark forests inland, have been well doumented, and the movements still occur.
The Swift Parrots at Bateau Bay, about 200+ birds are still present, having been first seen on 18/5/02. They are spread over about 12 surburban blocks, from Reserve Drive Bateau Bay, in the north and east, to Bateau Bay Road and Rickard Street to the west, including Sutton Reserve and part of Wyrrabalong National Park. They are primarily feeding on lerps in the big old Blackbutts of the leafy suburb of Bateau Bay, and in the flowering Swamp Mahogany mostly located in WNP & Sutton Res. Sutton Reserve, Norahview, Bangalow and Murray Streets are the best spots to see them.
Finally note my new email address. Please adjust your records, as emails send to the old address by 31 May 2002 will be rejected.
