I love autumn!

On Friday afternoon I was in my garden and heard the distinctive 
'pirr-pirr-pirr...' of Rainbow Bee-eaters. Not at all a common sound in 
Katoomba! I looked up to see a flock of 8 flying north overhead.

My house is under a migration route for all sorts of species. Soon I'll 
be watching the Yellow-faced and White-naped Honeyeaters in their 
thousands. The Silvereyes are already on the move, and as usual can be 
heard in the early hours of the morning, a few hours before dawn.
