A small group of Clarence Valley birdwatchers spent much of Saturday scanning flowering trees between Grafton and Moonee Beach in the hope of observing a Regent Honeyeater or Swift Parrot.  Despite large numbers of Noisy Friarbirds, Rainbow Lorikeets and Fuscous Honeyeaters and smaller numbers of Scaly-breasted and Little Lorikeets, Little Friarbirds, Little Wattlebirds, Noisy Miners and Blue-faced, White-cheeked, Black-chinned, Yellow-faced, Scarlet and White-throated Honeyeaters, no Swifties or Regents were observed. A visit to Ramornie National Park and State Forest late in the day also failed to detect the target species, although Black-chinned, Yellow-faced, Scarlet and White-naped Honeyeaters, Little and Rainbow Lorikeets and Noisy Friarbirds were seen.  I am sure that there were a few Eastern Spinebills around as well.  Russell Jago will be submitting the details to the co-ordinators.
