Mostly in the flowering ironbarks in the 2 car parks that are opposite
Lake Tuggeranong College but I also saw one today in the carpark
opposite McDonalds.

They have been there for at least 2 weeks and possibly longer. I guess
they will leave when the blossom finishes. When I saw them on the 2nd
they were in the ironbark closest to the Jindebah Cafe - and they
weren't in the least shy. Esme and I (who were getting ready to leave
for Brisbane and didn't have time to stay long to watch them) had good
views standing directly under where they were feeding in the tree.
They can be very inconspicuous though - so it pays to look carefully
into the foliage in as many trees as possible.
