Out at the Thawa Sandwash Sunday morning I watched a flock of 30+ Honeyeaters passing up the river corridoor (south). I don't know what type they were as didn't get much time to focus. Waited for more but that was the extent of it - could have been because of the light shower coming across from Namadgi.
Also at least 20 Red Wattle birds passed over head along the Monaro Highway up the hill before to turnoff to Thawa.

Birds flying over this morning through my usual haunts (Holt, CSIRO Gungahlin)- both species.
I cannot help but think that we could throw more light on the movement patterns of honeyeaters through the ACT if we could think of a way to systematically record our collective observations using the internet.  The problem would be to get observers to record where they have been and not seen any birds.  Any ideas?
