Yellow-faced Honeyeaters were moving through Whiskers Creek most of yesterday afternoon.  They were in the normal (for here) small flocks of 5 - 12. 

This morning there were many (20+) Striated Pardalotes calling from teh stringybarks just outside my GBS site.  As they had gone - or at least become silent (silent pardalote - an entry for oxymoron of the year?) 30 minutes later I presume they had moved somewhere.

When we first moved here in 2007  it was common to have a flock of 9 - 12 White-winged Choughs on various parts of the property.  The size of the flock gradually reduced so that for the first half of 2009 it was down to 3 birds.  From then on I hadn't seen any choughs on the place, although they are still common in the area generally.  In the last week a flock of 15 has re-appeared in the Upper Paddock.
