Hi all,

The banksias are having a good season here in the upper Blue Mountains and 
there are large numbers of Crescent Honeyeaters feeding in them as well as many 
Red Wattlebirds, White-naped, Yellow-faced, Brown-headed and a few 
Yellow-tufted and White-plumed which are normally rare in the sandstone 
country. Narrow Neck plateau at Katoomba is alive with honeyeater activity 
while Crescent Honeyeaters are currently the most common species along the 
tracks below the Conservation Hut at Wentworth Falls.

This is also the best time of year to see Rockwarblers. Within the past few 
days I've had several come so close they've almost hopped onto my shoes at 
various locations, including Evans Lookout where they habitually feed in the 

There are still a few Regent Honeyeaters in the Capertee Valley, feeding in 
flowering White Box along Crown Station Road.
