yesterday morning on Uriarra Road near Stromlo I saw a number of small groups of YFHE up to about 50-60 but as Sue reported these groups didn’t seem to be heading in any particular direction – some were flying back towards the Brindabella’s.  Also a Pied Butcherbird near Uriarra homestead where I’ve seen one a few times over the last 2-3 years

Just back from Aranda Bushland where there were lots of YFHE on the move but in no particular direction.  Some were in 2s, 6s etc with the biggest group numbering 15.  Also about 11 White-naped scattered amongst the YF, and 5 wattlebirds moving through.  Some lovely MFF as well on a perfect autumn morning, and a calling owlet-nightjar was a bonus.

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.
