Highlights this week from the Capertee Valley, NSW, included:

- Regent Honeyeaters performing beautifully along the river with their aerobatics and bell-like notes stealing the limelight. Two fledglings seen.

- A Spotted Harrier over Glenowlan Bridge on Monday.

- Singing Bushlark displaying at Glenowlan Bridge.

- Western Gerygones arrived and singing non-stop at Bogee.

- Musk Lorikeets in the White Box blossoms near Port Macquarie Road while Little Lorikeets are everywhere.

- On Monday, a new species for my place in the form of a Square-tailed Kite, seen first by John & Nancy Turner, and later by visiting Dutch birders and myself. The two "Painteds" continue to feature - with more Painted Honeyeaters arriving and a female Painted Button-quail giving us all great views.
