Hi all,
Stopped off for an hour last night at Bartleys Block, 36 07, 146 36 in the Chiltern Box Ironbark National Park. To my surprise a couple of Mugga Ironbarks were flowering which had attracted a variety of species. Little Lorikeet, Yellow-tufted, Fuscous, Brown-headed and White-plumed Honeyeaters were all feeding on the blossom. I also observed a male Black Honeyeater here, a drought vagrant. I saw another inthe Chiltern region on the 22/2 as well.
As I was leaving two Swift Parrots flew low overhead giving the characteristic "clink-clink" call. Good news I think, now all that needs to happen is the drought to break.
