I have just returned from a drive to Bungendore. Going along Briars-Sharrow Rd was like driving through a locust swarm: my estimate was at least 500 Yellow-faced Honeyeaters flitting from hawthorn bush to hawthorn bush until the top of a mall rise where they appeared to veer off to the East.
Coming back about 30 minutes later the story was the same. I suspect, but can't prove that the two sets of birds were different so within the 30 minutes at least 1,000 birds passed through.
