Small numbers of YFHEs were observed flying over the houses heading in a NE direction on 23 March ’14. This would put them on a flight path between Parramatta and Sydney CBD.


These may be relatively local birds setting out. Is there any information on where the bulk of the YFHEs from SE NSW  pass Sydney?

Thanks to various COG members who have reported the start-up of the YFHE migration past Canberra. As many of you will know, Robertson is approximately 200 Km north-east from Canberra, above the Illawarra escarpment.

I saw my first groups passing by the southern edge of Robertson (overlooking Kangaroo Valley) on Thursday afternoon, at 5:00 PM.

Mostly small groups 10s and 20s. Heading north-east. Calling their "chip, chip, chip" flight calls.
In the course of 30 minutes I saw several hundred birds passing.


It is always good to be tipped off by COG members on the movements of these birds.

Are you amongst Greg Hunt's "increasingly hysterical environmental activists"?
If not, why not?
