Over the past few days an adult Spiney-cheeked Honeyeater was observed and videoed at Lake Tinaroo on the Atherton Tablelands by Jack and Pat Leighton of Tinaroo Birds and Barra. Normally a species of inland regions this represents the first record (to my knowledge) to the north of Mt.Fox and Townsville. That is at least 200 kilometres to the south.
    This abnormal movement means that many species are still very much responding to dry conditions despite unseasonal rains in some areas of the inland.
     The individual was firstly encountered feeding in Eucalypts and the following days was filmed in company with others honeyeaters feeding in Grevilleas.
