No recent Regent H/e sightings that I'm aware of, but the mistletoe is still flowering well and this is attracting friarbirds, lorikeets and other honeyeaters. Definitely worth keeping an eye out wherever you see general honeyeater activity. As always, please report any Regent sightings to either David Geering or Tiffany Mason

There are many possible spots for PBQ, Turquoise Parrots and Speckled Warblers but try searching the hillsides behind the Glen Davis campground and the start of the Newnes walking track, which could be productive for any of these species at the moment. Also lots of good habitat along the road towards Rylstone, and along Port Macquarie Road.

Genowlan Road bridge is always a good area for Little Eagles. I rarely go to the Capertee Valley without seeing a Little Eagle somewhere though.

The Little Red Flying Fox camp on the Capertee River has gone, but it's possible they've moved further down the river and I haven't had a chance to search recently.

I wanted to take some friends to Capertee this coming weekend. Are there any recent sightings of Regent Honeyeaters? Other birds of special interest would be Painted Buttonquail, Turquoise Parrot, Speckled Warbler, Little Eagle - any good spots for them? And last: is the Little Red Flying-fox roost still active?
