Over the past few weeks on the NSW south coast, Ulladulla, for the first time I can remember we have had small to large flocks of Silvereyes that are foraging everywhere, in bushes, on the grass, on the beach, under salt marsh samphire, along fences etc. There were the Tassy forms at first and now the eastern form, so I am wondering if the dry inland conditions have pushed them onto the coast where food is also a bit short and takes a lot more effort to find.

Also heard the first Koel for the summer yesterday, a few weeks after the Channel-billed Cuckoos arrived.

Cheers Chris
