Andrew Cockburn sent me this reply off forum, re Origma sighting.
I am publishing it (below) as it gave me the confidence to report suspected Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters as being in the Bombaderry Creek in good numbers.
Hi Denis

They (Origmas) have been there for at least a few years - in fact this is the first place I ever saw one, having had the site pointed out to me by one of my postdocs.  
When I was there large numbers of yellow-tufted HE were also present, more than I have seen anywhere in NSW.

Cheers, Andrew Cockburn
Hi Andrew
Thanks for that report of Origma in Bombaderry Creek Reserve.
Re the Yellow-tufted HEs, I was looking for Orchids (with a close-up lens on my camera), instead of binoculars, so I missed confirming the suspected Yellow-tufted HEs. Thanks for the tip. I am confident that's what they would have been, now that you have reported they have been previously recorded there.
They were present in good numbers, calling loudly.
It is a lovely spot, we worth a visit if you are in the district.
