Hello all!
It has been great for WTNts on the coast. Had a flock of 300 yesterday flying low over my house, some birds flying less then 2 meters from my head, wing beats clearly audible.
Haven't been out much with all the rain, but autumn movements have started with the first Silvereyes and Cuckoos moving through as well as a few Waders.
