Heading out west, stopped for lunch at Mt Boyce, just west of Blackheath Saturday 22 April, and the YFHEs were flying over in regular groups with a few White-naped - at least 100 in the half hour we were there, so the migration is well and truly on. Then we heard and saw many in the Sofala area 22nd-25th and in Capertee Valley I heard/saw YFHEs on the move yesterday 25th. Late afternoon when I left, no sign of Swifties - no doubt they are there somewhere but there is very little in flower.
Also notable in Capertee were huge flocks of Red-browed Finches (50-100 per flock) - one at the Macquarie Road/Glen Alice road junction 9with Diarmond Finch and Double-barred0, one at the bridge on the main Capertee/Glen Davis road before the Glen Alicek turn-off (with DBs, Zebras and DFs), one at the Windmill about a km from that bridge towards Glen Davis (with DBs), and the fourth at "Site 10", the bridge on Glenowan Road (with DBs and DFs). Must have been a bumper breeding season for these little mites. As hard as I looked, could see no Plum-heads.
