You are correct that there was little
activity over the weekend. However, there was plenty of activity up until
Friday – not as much as the previous week but still plenty happening.
Interestingly the birds were still predominately Yellow-faced with only 10-15%
White-naped. For anyone interested in migration routes, I have been following
the flocks and backtracking and now have a pretty good idea of the “Tralee
Trail”. It crosses the Murrumbidgee just north of Kambah Pool, runs
around the southern slopes of Mt Taylor following the line of Sulwood Drive,
crosses Erindale Drive 300m north of the Long Gully Rd intersection, crosses
Isaacs Ridge around the three southern communications towers, over Mugga Lane
at Mugga homestead, the Monaro Highway at the intersection of Lanyon Drive,
follows Jerrabomberra Ck to Lake Jerra, east over Jerra, over the Monaro Cement
quarry on Old Cooma Rd then over the Queanbeyan River near Wickerslack Lane.

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?
