G'day All,
I've finally found some Swift Parrots in the Eastern Billabong Creek catchment (southern NSW) where i have been conducting a fauna survey for the last 10 months as part of my job. On Saturday (13/7) ,there were at least two about 10 km south of Walla Walla, which is about a 1/2 hour NW of Albury, on the edges of a large remnant that has some White Box, none of which is flowering. I led an outing with the Albury-Wodonga Field Naturalists later that afternoon around Walbundrie (about 20 minutes further west) where another 7 were seen, together with at least one Yellow-plumed Honeyeater, a very rare record for this area. Hooded Robins, Diamond Firetails, Red-capped Robins, Chestnut-rumped Thornbills, Rufous Whistlers and other woodland birds kept the group of nearly 40 quite satisfied. Swift Parrot survey forms are being forwarded to Debbie Saunders. They're not ALL on the coast this winter! Cheers, Matt Herring
