At lunchtime today 3 Swift Parrots flew over the Eucalypt Lawn at the ANBG. I heard them several times afterwards but could not relocate them precisely. I'm fairly sure that they were in the flowering Eucalyptus agglomerata (Blue-leaved Stringybark) in the Sydney Gully but could not verify that.
An immature male Rose Robin was in the vicinity of the Display Glasshouse.

I spent most of my time roaming through the Rutaceae but no Olive Whistler was to be found. Sad news for Grevillea newbeyii aficionados, the planting appears to have been mulched in some re-landscaping project.
