Last Sunday (12 Aug) I heard and then saw two Rainbow Bee-eaters in coastal
scrub at Tweed Heads on the NSW/Qld border (in NSW).  This seemed early to me,
though I was only a transient and don't know that area well.  HANZAB gives
several August records from various locations in southern Australia.   Is this
an early arrival, or just normal?  Do birds sometimes winter as far south as
this?  Cheers, Richard.
