0900 today at Pegasus Riding School, Holt, a  pristine day before the breeze kicked in, sun beamed from a faultless West Belconnen sky so the dew-laden pasture looked like a St. Patrick’s Day cake with diamond dusting. Small groups (4-6, 8-10) of Yellow-faced Honeyeaters heading generally NE, then other groups would appear and head in the opposite direction. Maybe it was a recruitment drive before flocks headed out on the big push to wherever. When the sporadic forays of Honeys petered out we noticed 3 Spotted Doves on a power line, also 5 Double-barred Finches soaking up the sun on a netting wire fence.
