I did two sample counts of honeyeaters at Jerrabomberra today, counting birds for 30 minutes from 9:30 till 10:00 and 12:15 till 12:45. The result was around 2000 birds for each period with flocks passing at an average of one per minute.  The largest flock was 330 with one other at 300, one at 200 and four between 100 and 170.  Again most were Yellow-faced but there were several groups of Red Wattlebirds as well.  Interestingly today activity had pretty well dried up by 1:30 with only the odd small flock after that.
