Well it is a bit dull to mention every observation but they were migrating at my house Saturday and today (Monday), including about 40 Red Wattlebirds in one flock. Also for the first time ever at my house about 30 Noisy Miners (not quite at my house but in my GBS area. And at Mt Taylor at mid day today small group of migrating Y-f & W-n Honeyeaters and 3 White-eared Honeyeaters in one tree, which is a bit odd they are usually not sociable.

As far as I can tell no-one has reported any migration over this weekend, despite it being cool overnight.  Has the migration stopped already?  Do others share my feeling that, except for Lindsay Hansch's place in Jerrabomberra, migration through the suburbs hardly occurs now compared with 10-20 years ago?
