Honeyeater activity ran for about 45 minutes and ceased as the wind speed increased.

Surprisingly, after two days of no honeyeater activity, there is a lot of action this morning over Jerrabomberra. There has been a steady stream of honeyeaters running with the tail wing starting
from about 10:00.
Thanks Tony, certainly the overcast conditions today were not ideal for honeyeater migration, especially relatively early in the season. They prefer clear still days after a cool crisp night, so
based on the forecasts conditions will probably improve from Sunday but won’t be ideal until about Tuesday next week. Jack Holland

I went out to Narrabundah Hill Nature Reserve today. Initially it was very quiet, but at about 11:00am, on the north boundary, 2 flocks, each of about 100 Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, came through
followed by three smaller groups. A raptor then flew by and that was the end of that. Except for one White-eared Honeyeater and a few Red Wattlebirds, which could have been locals, they all seemed to be Yellow-faces.
