Last week saw the first arrival of warblers in the Gunnedah area.   I have
heard and seen both western warblers and the white-throated.   Therre have
also been rufous whistlers around for about three weeks now.

I couldn't report this any quicker as I've just been stranded at home by
our fourth major flood since late July!   (I don't have the Internet at
home - this is my work computer.)   There was also a minor flood in June,
but that one hardly counts now.

Incidentally, during one of the previous floods a resident of Curlewis (a
village just south of Gunnedah) had two magpie geese roost in their tree
overnight.   They haven't been seen since, and that is the first record for
Gunnedah Shire of them.
