I agree with Barbara.  Yesterday was a big day for migrating honeyeaters over Jerrabomberra (NSW).  I spent two hours outside during the late morning and many thousands of honeyeaters passed over.  The biggest flock was over 100 and there was another of 740, however, in the main flocks were 40-50.  Also a flock of 10 Red Wattlebirds and circling above the action was a Little Eagle(a first for my records of Jerra) being harassed by two Magpielarks.

Despite the weather, this morning provided good migratory-bird-watching, at least till about 10.30, in my Page garden. Small flocks of Yellow-faces – 24 the biggest, plus both whistlers, a juvenile oriole, a Grey Fantail, as well as the regulars – Rainbow Lorikeets feeding young, Crested Pigeons,  silvereyes, blackbirds, starlings, sparrows, a Willie Wagtail, Eastern Spinebill, Red Wattlebirds, magpies, Yellow-rumped Thornbills etc. b
