Hi all,


Sitting in my “computer room” at around 1215 this afternoon I heard the call of a Rainbow Lorikeet in the distance. I went out to check where it was and was surprised to find five lorikeets and at least nine Red Wattlebirds feeding in a flowering Eucalyptus leucoxylon in my front yard in my garden in Kaleen. At present I have E. leucoxylon, E. polybractea (Blue Mallee) and E. mannifera all in flower. At night we are getting reasonable numbers of Grey-headed Flying-foxes coming in to feed in all three tree species along with one or two Brush-tailed Possums. My poor old 4wd is copping a lot of the “fallout”, especially from my night time visitors!


An incidental report form will be filled in for COG for the lorikeets. Unfortunately no other lorikeets species  .......... YET!!!!
