In a similar vein we had honeyeaters moving through in larger than usual numbers this morning.  The biggest flock was approximately 50 yellow faced.

This followed an overflight by a White-necked Heron: a first for my GBS site.

This morning at around 8.40 am while driving along Horse Park Drive I noticed a large loose flock of honeyeaters. They were flying by some large eucalypts. Very unusual as there aren’t many trees in Harrison.

They were flying in an easterly direction approximately parallel to Horse Park Drive. There must have been about 40-50 Yellow-faced Honeyeaters involved.


We don’t normally get many honeyeaters through this part of town.
