David Geering asks about coastal observations south of Jervis Bay.  Here, between Merimbula and Eden, the Yellow-faced Honeyeaters usually begin passing through in a steady stream of 0000's from the end of April.  We are still waiting! There have only been small (50+) groups,occasionally.  Similarly the White-naped which accompany them in smaller numbers have been absent.  Red Wattlebirds which also come a few weeks later in even greater numbers and over a wider path did not appear either.  The hazard reduction burn-offs created large ammounts of dense smoke which did not get away quickly this year.  Would that have re-routed the birds?
