On the 17th sept saw a lot of yellow faced honeyeaters in pine trees and nearby wattles on the north eastern boundry of Mulligans flat NR, which is the NSW/ACT boarder. They were very hungry and were searching for insects etc, presumably after the trip to come back here.  Have not seen any since.
On the weekend at the wetlands in Tidbinbilla saw my first White-naped Honeyeater for the 'spring' on Sunday.
On Monday near my current office in Braddon near the ABC saw an Olive-backed Oriole - first for the season.
