Great that you are back, Lindsay, to report on honey eaters flying over your place. So, where are Lindsay's honey eaters coming from? There have not been many reports of birds flying over S.Canberra. In fact, not many reports at all. Maybe the birds are flying along different routes, or maybe they are flying later than usual, despite the fact that we are past the equinox. Nights are just beginning to get cooler. Why have they given up on the Murrumbidgee corridor? It would be good if we could see Geoffrey's map of the routes that he suggested the birds took, a couple of years ago. (Could you put it on the chat line , please Geoffrey?)

I believe that thousands of birds, including honey eaters were killed in last year's fires in Victoria

Any news about the migration along the coast?
