While out of the COGAOI quite a few members do visit the Far East and this is about species seen in the AOI,

There have been a few flocks of ~25 Yellow-faced Honeyeaters moving through the area (coming from the direction of the Airport and proceeding up towards the Narrows (where I suspect they cross and head over the Howe Flats) in recent weeks but no large scale movement.  This morning that picked up, with constant flocks of 20-30 birds moving through on our dog walk from 0800 - 0900.  

A couple of groups of White-naped also came through, totaling ~30 birds.

The most spectacular were the Red Wattlebirds.  2 of the flocks were at least 60 birds and several flocks of 20+ got my total up to 340 birds.
