Here in Gippsland the Eucalypts are making up for lost time with a very heavy flowering, and this has meant a big influx of Honeyeaters. Red Box is flowering at the moment, and is a hive of activity. On a walk this morning I counted seven species, and was amazed at the number of Eastern Spinebills, it was a still day, and the main sound was the rapid fire flutter of their wings as they darted about. There would have been hundreds, likewise Yellow-faced. The others noted were Red Wattlebirds, ( heaps), Yellow-tufted, White-naped, Brown-headed, and quite a few beautiful Crescent. Forest Red Gum is heavy in bud and will be the next to flower, so we should have good birding for quite a while. Duncan Fraser, Maffra, Vic.
