Like Jenny, I have had Dusky Woodswallows also over my house today
(about 8 I think but some at or above the limits of observability until
using the binoculars). Chris at the last COG meeting talked about
observing the "last" Dusky Woodswallows but we do have small numbers
present through the winter at least some years although maybe not the
same birds.

I had a similar number around 1000 or more fly over my Weston house
the same time as Sandra between 9-10am on Friday.

They were coming from the SW, from the Chapman/Murrumbidgee River
and headed for Oakey Hill to the NE.  Majority were Yellow-faced, with 
smaller number of White naped.

This morning (Sat), there were a few small flocks of honeyeaters (less
100 total) passing over, including two Fuscous which stopped briefly in
trees.  A dozen Dusky Woodswallows also passed over.
