I neglected to mention that while in the Capertee Valley last week that there appears to be a minor eruption of "western" honeyeaters in the valley at the moment.  Both Little Friarbirds and Spiny-cheeked Honeyeaters were quite evident in flowering White Box in the north-west section of the valley.

I've also just returned from the Barraba area of northern NSW where I heard my first singing Rufous Songlarks (at several locations) of the season.  I've been seeing Rufous Songlarks all winter in the Capertee Valley but these have been silent.  I dare say they are about to burst into song.
