Hi all,

Greville & Margaret Reidy and I visited Capertee Valley yesterday and
saw Regents in two places.  3 + at the first major creek crossing in the
valley proper (coming from capertee) and 3+ (only ever saw 3 at once but
more were calling) at the creek on the first road to the left going west
from Glen Alice. We spoke to the owner of the bush block on the RHS over
the creek who said they have been around and visiting his veranda.

Other birds of interest were:

Large numbers of Little Lorrikeets,
White Plumed, Yellow Tufted, Yellow Faced and Striped Honeyeaters as
well as Noisy friarbirds and Red Wattlebirds. Interestingly there
appeared to be no friarbirds or watllebirds with the Regents.
Lots of Jacky Winters
Plenty of Striated Pardelotes (red tipped wide wing bar)
Diamond Firetails, Double Bars, Red Browed and Zebra Finches
Wedge Tailed Eagle, Brown Falcon, Black Shouldered Kite and Nankeen

We didn't see Swift Parrots, Turquoise Parrots or Plum Headed Finches.

A great days birding.
