Further to my message yesterday:

As I type there are dozens of Rainbow Lorikeets in my street, in the
Eucalyptus oreades. This is quite an event for Katoomba considering I'd
only ever seen a couple of them here in 15 years.

The Scarlet Honeyeaters seemed to have mostly left Birdwood Gully this
morning, but there were some in the Jamison Valley yesterday afternoon.

I am told Corymbia gummifera (Red Bloodwood) is flowering in the lower
mountains (Glenbrook) while the E. oreades up here have a few flowers.
