Apologies, Richard - YFHE is Yellow-faced Honeyeater, WNHE is White-naped Honeyeater.
MFF is mixed feeding flock, a feature of autumn and winter birding where a number of species are found feeding together. Often you will walk for ages before you hear or see a small bird at this time of year. I find that the easiest way to find the the MFF is to listen for fantails calling, locate the fantails and then stand and wait and watch. Many birds do not call much at this time of year so you need to watch for movement, and more and more species will gradually appear. I was seeing Rufous and Golden Whistlers, Scarlet Robins, Brown and Striated Thornbills, Weebills, White-throated Treecreepers, and Spotted and Striated Pardalotes.
