Hi - interested in both the lack of silvereyes and their lack of interaction with the grapes. In our Kambah house, which I visited at the end of February, we had at least a dozen and often more in and around our waterfall for long periods of time each day, underneath the 'mock' rainforest which gives them plenty of protection.

And as far as I could see no damage to the grapes which were still edible and hadn't had any net protection at all, in fact the only grape predators we've ever noticed are currawongs which strip the red grapes before they're ripe enough for us to eat, but don't seem to go after the white ones growing alongside.

I'd much rather they ate the grapes than baby silvereyes!

cheers, Wendy
