We get them often in the hunter after westerlys, I posted a sighting
a couple a weeks ago and I also had them yesterday. I came across
about 200+ White-browed and Masked Woods yesterday at about 5:30pm,
with fading light I chased them down and found them roosting in the
Kurri Sand Swamp Woodland, amongst Corymbia maculata and Eucalyptus
parramattenis subsp. decadens. I checked them out this morning but
they had gone by 7am, I suspected so as with the southerly we got last
night I'd say they were on there way back inland early this morning.
