Today at my home it is certainly on, as has been on various days over the past 2 weeks. Not big flocks, mostly 20 to 50.

Lindsay, very interesting and in line with the numbers moving through at Narrabundah Hill over last weekend (1-2 April).  On the COG walk there we only saw a couple of very late groups of a dozen or so, one of which seemed to be in no hurry to move on.


Perhaps the colder clearer nights and days forecast for the next few will get the migration going, it certainly is a late start, given the indication now over 10 days ago on the last weekend in March that they were starting to move.

Is anyone seeing a mass  migration yet?  I certainly am not over the Tralee Flyway (Jerrabomberra, NSW).  Over the past week I have seen a single flock on each of four day ranging in size from 5 to 55 (the latter yesterday).  Red Wattlebirds seem to be on the move as do Pied Currawongs.
