usually we have waves of Yellow faced and White naped Honeyeaters moving
through (actually over) Geelong in autumn.

This year I didn't see flocks of Y faced until 10 July and saw none of
Whitenaped. (This doesn't mean there were none but usually if there were
lots I would expect to see some)

However there seem to be plenty of both in surrounding bushland, so maybe
they just changed their route
