On a clear sunny day the honeyeater migration is in full swing on the Far South Coast of NSW. 
Prior to today they have been coming through in groups of 40 sporadically for the last few weeks but today is continuous. They have been on the move all morning and I just took a chair and notepad outdoors to get an idea of numbers.
In the last 15 minutes over my home at Nethercote, 37 00' 18" S 149 50' 28" E there were 600 all heading due north. And so it continues!
