Hi all,
I went out this morning for the Swift Parrot/Regent Honeyeater survey to Mangalore Flora and Fauna Reserve (15km north of Seymour) and to Seymour Bushland Reserve.
At Mangalore a pair of Swifties were quickly found in some Grey Box. About 300m away a larger flock of 6 birds was located in Grey Box as well, they were feeding on lerp. Very few box trees were in flower. Other great sightings were two groups of White-browed Babblers, a White-bellied Cuckoo-shrike, three Black-chinned Honeyeaters, some overwintering or early returned Dusky Woodswallows and a Black Kite over a nearby paddock.
At Seymour no Swifties were found. However two pairs of Scarlet Robins, a small flock of Flame Robins and a Speckled Warbler were good to observe.
