Hi Tom


Now, I promise you I don't want to be in any way competitive!!

In fact, I'm significantly envious of all the great birds you find around
Samsonvale - and just as green-eyed about the photos your getting of them.

However, for the sake of the record, I ought to mention that we had a male
Black Honeyeater in the garden at Abberton in October 1994, at the time of
the last irruption, which also coincided with large flocks of the more
inland woodswallows - as happened again hereabouts in October of last year.

The woodswallows have dissipated, but some of the Black Honeyeaters seem to
be lingering on.

And you're certainly further east than we are!

All the best

Bill Jolly
