The ANPS Weds walk today, enhanced (?) by my presence after a fair break, covered Burra Creek in Tinderry National Park. 

No Duskies were seen, but about 200 migrating Yellow-faced Honeyeaters were recorded in flocks from 7 to 80 birds, mainly heading SE.. There were also many White-winged Choughs - 30+ in one group an 10 in another - as well as 6 Brown-headed Honeyeaters and 2 Eastern Yellow Robin.  White-eared Honeyeaters and Scarlet Robins were everywhere.

The annual visitors Dusky Woodswallows were still in Tinderry yesterday at an altitude of 850 ms, halfway up the Queanbeyan River, gliding and hawking. Will check again in next two months.
