Hi all,

A few (interesting) observations from over the past week...

Wed 23 Mar at 1700 h I saw a flock of 111 Little Corellas and 5 Long-billed Corellas feasting on fallen plane tree 'cones' and (still attached) hawthorn berries along Parkes Way between the Coranderrk circle/pond and the Alinga St footbridge.

At Kellys Swamp, still Wed 23 Mar, I saw a single Australian Spotted Crake in amongst the reeds from the 'casuarina hide'.

Sat 26 Mar 1100 h, the Common Sandpiper still present at Uriarra Crossing.

Casuarina Sands, Sat 26 Mar c.1300 h, not a single honeyeater of any type in the hour I was there, though I did see a flock of about 20 Silvereyes, seemingly on migration, flying across river as a tight group of about 15 plus another 6 stragglers, calling their migration contact calls.
