The Collared Sparrowhawks are very much in evidence again in their usual breeding pine trees corner of Hopetoun Circuit and Fitzgerald St. The male is very vocal at times. I imagine they may have young, as today I saw both adults off the nest. It would be greatly appreciated if observers desisted from playing tapes.

There seem to be a lot of Silvereyes around; more than usual. A couple of weeks ago we were in the Capertee Valley where we saw very large flocks of them, clearly on the move to somewhere.
