Hi Birders,
I paid a visit to the Galgabra Reserve at South Swansea on Saturday 24 April
to check to see how the flowering of the Swamp Mahogany was progressing. I
was pleased to see that about 30% of trees were in flower and the remainder
were well in but and should flower shortly. Already the nectar flow was
attracting plenty of honeyeaters and lorikeets. In the hour that I was there
I saw over 100+ Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, 50+ Noisy Friarbirds, 40+
White-cheeked, 5+ Scarlet & 2+ Fuscous Honeyeaters, in addition to Red &
Little Wattlebirds, Little, Musk & Rainbow Lorikeets. Bell & Noisy Miners,
Lewins Honeyeatres, Spotted Pardalotes, Grey Fantails etc.

Galgabra Point is a fairly regular site for both Regent Honeyeaters and
Swift Parrots once the flowering of the Swamp Mahoganies gets under way. So
it would we well worthwhile checking from now on to see if either or both
species turns up this autumn. Some Red Bloodwood is also flowering in the
vicinity so that conditions for these two Threatened Species seem right for
this site.

Good birding
