I wonder how the honeyeater migration is going this year?  Yesterday I had my first lot of yellow-face through in Holt.  The Striated Pardalotes have been travelling well with many passing through Black Mountain last Thursday.  Given the lack of flowering in the Brindabellas due to the 2003 fires it will once again be interesting to see how the honeyeaters have coped.


I cannot help but wonder if it is possible to get a better handle on the daily movement patterns through Canberra.  Email should be a perfect vehicle for doing this.  What about the idea of contributors logging and reporting daily the movement over their particular patch and someone (me?) then collating the pattern. Whatever happens it would be important to log the days when there was no movement and the time of day when observing.


Any ideas?
