Elizabeth and all
Honeyeater movement on the Far South Coast has been slow with only small migratory flocks of 10 - 20 birds reported from Kalaru and Tathra area.
Mallacoota at the weekend was quiet too.
However this morning, April 14 at Pambula it appears things are happening with three flocks of 40 - 50 and other smaller groups of Yellow-faced Honeyeaters passing through. 
We generally see the biggest movement later in April so time will tell.
Silvereyes have been on the move too and there are Tasmanian birds feeding at Panboola this morning.
Red Wattlebirds usually start their passage later too, running into May.
