For all those sydneysiders who have searched for swift parrots but haven't been able to find them so far this year, there are up to 100 swift parrots at Nth Richmond.  David Potter reported these birds and has seen them near his house at 190 Terrace Rd (1.9km from the Bells Line of Road intersection) North Richmond.  The birds have been at the site since monday and vary in number from 6 to over 100 depending on the day.  They are in some ironbark forest on the western side of the road on a steep hill amongst a bell miner colony.  Although the ironbark isn't in flower the birds are happily feeding on lerps.
