A good afternoon in bright autumn sunshine:
1. 100s of Silvereyes along the river, they didn't seem to be migrating as such, just feeding. In some places the casuarinas were crawling with them. Various other birds were associating with them in smaller numbers: Brown Thornbill, Speckled Warbler, Red-browed Finch
2. One late Dollarbird
3. Dozens of Bee-eaters; some were circling high up and seemed to be migrating north, others were feeding young still.
4. 3 Black Falcons circling over the river; a male, a female and a young female. The female I saw a couple of times in October must have found a mate and bred successfully!
