I have just retruned from my regular bird-walk around our property with our two 
black Labs. - We live on 25 acres of mature native woodland on the outskirts of 
Armidale, NSW. After a couple of days of very welcome rain the skies were very 
overcast so I was very surprised to encounter hordes of birds. Most interesting 
was a flock of 15-20 Red Wattlebirds (see below) clearly on the move and flying 
southeast. The light was so poor that the identity of many of honeyeaters was 
not possible but among those I could identify were goodly numbers of Grey 
Fantails, thornbills, a flock of Varied Sittellas, loads of Fuscous Honeyeaters 
plus Noisy Friarbirds and the first White-naped Honeyeater I have seen here in 
a while.
