Yes, they certainly did arrive up here at Katoomba as well. Yesterday I heard them constantly throughout the day, usually flying so high I could barely see them but when I did they were in large swirling flocks as well as individual birds moving through. The few birds I saw clearly were White-browed but I'd be surprised if there weren't Masked amongst them as well.

Katoomba in the upper Blue Mountains is 100km west of Sydney.

Hi all,
The Woodswallows have arrived in Hazelbrook. This morning at about 8.30 I
counted 250 + birds flying over my home, I was at the tail end of the flock,
they congregated about 1.5ks away and I estimate 700+ birds.I couldn't get
close enough for a good ID By 9.30 they had moved on. Probably heading
towards Carol Probets, at Katoomba.

I haven't heard a Koel yet this season, but the Channel bills are having fun
with the Currawongs.

Cheers Lynda
