Dear Michael,

The Central Coast Bird Report for 1995 and 1996 (not quite out yet! but
will be by the end of the week) makes the statement that YFHE are
resident in Gosford/Wyong LGAs and they are also autumn-winter migrants.
They do not appear to be resident in the coastal reservs of Wyrrabalong,
Bouddi and Munmorah but they are resident in Brisbane Water, Popran,
Dharug & Yengo NPs which are set back a few kms from the coast onto the
coastal plateaus.
