Gidday Birders,
                        went to the central coast on Tuesday, but
unfortunately it was for work and didn't have time to chase shovellers or
Swifties. However I had lunch at a park on the edge of Tuggerah lake
(Chittaway bay lions park..I think). I was impressed by the numbers of Swans
and Chestnut teal but the real surprise was the call of Striped Honeyeaters.
I always associate these birds with inland areas and its always nice to find
them on the coast.

I was wondering if these are resident birds or have they come in due to the
drought. Any comments from local birders appreciated.
