I was on Dairy Farmers Hill at the Arboretum on Saturday 27th April when two flocks of migrating honey eaters wheeled through, landing and flying between the three pine trees, landing in the very top and taking off and wheeling around briefly, landing and then taking off again. I estimated 80 to 120 in each flock.  Beautiful crisp morning at about 11.00. No breeze to speak of. I only positively identified a white-eared honeyeater, when it settled. They were all too quick.  But behaviour was the usual migrating honeyeater. Finally disappeared off toward the north, still quite high.
