Hi again

My first sighting of a Male Flame on the property this morning.  First immature 
(maybe female?) was seen on 9th and there were at least 4 there this morning 
and 6 late this afternoon.

Have had minimum of 2 Scarlet males here for most of the last week (first for 
season was 27/3) but haven't seen a female yet; and haven't seen a male today 
or yesterday.

A few extra species of honeyeater at showing up; only regulars were 
White-plumed, New Holland and Red Wattlebird for a about 3 weeks but now 
Brown-headed, Fuscous, Yellow-faced, Spinebill and White-eared(away since July 
04) are around again and sharing the scarce blossom.

Heard the first lorikeets this afternoon, don't know which but Purple-crowned 
are likely I think.
