Seemed like the perfect morning to fly east. The sound of honeyeaters in the air seemed almost constant from about 10am to 11am. Small groups were travelling in scattered groups from the Mount Stromlo region and further west.  The largest group was of about 45 birds.  I counted the smaller groups as they passed over me while I was walking along. The total came to 201.


15 Red Wattle Birds appeared to be in migration mode, and a flock of 13 Dusky Woodswallow were noisy in the air.


Best birds today were 2 young looking fluffy Laughing Kookaburra, and one special Spotted Pardalote in brilliant colour.
