Last year, in Robertson, we had an influx of Grey-headed Flying Foxes. They have not come this year. So, they must have gone somewhere else.
Previously, as a resident of Anza Park, Reid, I have observed them at the end of January to feed on the Tassie Blue Gums along either side of Anzac Parade, which normally flower at that time. That avenue has a very large concentration of flowering trees, with strong sweet scent. Obviously a point of note on the itinerary of Flying Foxes. As all those trees (the original plantings) were cloned, they all flower at the same time. Huge food resource for Flying Foxes, for a short period of time.
I know it a bit of a hike from Queanbeyan, but if you look for flowering gum trees in your area, you might have your "destination". Either that or fruit orchards. Plum Trees are popular with them, too. Plums are in fruit now.
