Hi all
Saw my first Rufous Whistler for the season this morning [and in this area] - just passing through - in the coastal park near my home.  Yellow-faced Honeyeaters moved through a few weeks ago.
As I live towards the end of a very narrow peninsula with Bass Strait to the south, Port Phillip Bay to the north and the entrance to the bay to the west whenever I see a migrant 'passing through' I am always intrigued as to where they have come from.  As their preferred habitat is east of here I always assume they have come across the bay from probably the Queenscliff area as this would be the shortest distance for them to travel across water.  What other options are there?
Sorrento, Vic
