With apologies for a late report re movement in the Murrumbidgee Corridor:


On Sunday 13 April, at Pine Island, north end, there were large numbers of YF HEs on the move between 11.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m., mostly in an upstream direction, tho’ some headed east. Groups of 10 to 50+. Some White-naped among them, perhaps 10-15%. Stopping to forage in eucs.

[…] One last comment, about: have any been seen flying along the Murrumbidgee corridor? I think that most of the birds that flew that route were killed in the 2008 fires, in Victoria. I suspect that their populations build up very quickly and there would unlikely be any or much residual impact on birds in the ACT from the birds that flew that route were killed in the 2008 fires, in Victoria. The birds I get in Kambah have surely come along the Murrumbidgee corridor in some way.
