Hi Andrew,

Sorry for the lateness of this reply. It’s 3 weeks since I’ve been to the 
valley so I don’t have the most recent gen, but I spent plenty of time there 
during spring and Plum-heads are having a good season after all the rain in 
early spring. For starters try near the Capertee River bridge at the Glen David 
Rd/Glen Alice Rd junction; at Glen Alice between the bridge and the community 
hall; and at Genowlan Road bridge. These are sites 7, 10 and 11 on the bird 
sites leaflet. By now they should have bred up and be anywhere in the valley so 
look closely at any finch flocks, as they can be mixed with Double-bars and 
other species. Pay special attention to areas with water and reeds.

Hope you have a good visit.
