Hi Birders,
Swift Parrots continue to be present on the Central Coast with numbers still
increasing. However they are still only being reported in the Bateau Bay
area. Between 1-7 June, they were recorded as follows:

20+ Sutton Reserve, cnr Sutton Res & Bateau Bay Rd Bateau Bay
30+ Lakin St, mostly cnr of Lakin St & Point St, Bateau Bay (S33 22 51 E151
28 46)
10+ Murray St Bateau Bay
6+ cnr Bias Ave and Anne Finlay Place, Bateau Bay (S33 22 46  E151 28 43)
2+ Nareen Gardens, Yakalla St Bateau Bay (S33 22 37  E151 28 44) only on

While there is some movement between all the sites, at any one time during
the seven days you could find birds at each of the four sites. All birds
appear to be feeding in flowering Swamp Mahogany, except that the Murray St
birds must also be taking lerps because there are few trees in flower at
this site. My guess is that there are about 60 birds.
