Thanks, Ken.  I sat on top of Isaacs Ridge the weekend before last watching HEs and I noted that they were reluctant to fly between the southern three towers.  In every case the flock of HE would pause short of the towers and then fly north or south around them before resuming their track down over Mugga Station.

About 30 YFHE went over our house in Isaacs Sunday afternoon in three groups. As they flew towards the ridge near the towers, one group turned north, the others turned south but I then lost sight of them. Before this we have seen very few honeyeaters passing through here. One white-eared hung about the house last week for a few days.
