I walked the river walk northward along the Murrumbidgee River from the Tharwa bridge this morning and counted numerous waves of migrating Y-f honeyeaters in groups of about 30 to 90. Probably 300-400 in total in the 2 hours I was there. The birds were heading up river in a southerly direction. There were a few White-plumed honeyeaters in the trees but not on the move.  Lindell

I was in the Aranda Bushland Nature Reserve today 12:00 to 13:00 which was probably too late for good numbers of migrating birds - but a pulse of about 60 Yellow-faced Honeyeaters came through at 12:30.  No White-naped HE's were noticed.
