I have a feeling this season will be a good one for the honeyeater migration through the Blue Mountains. Already good numbers have been moving through on every fine weather day since 28th March. In the last few days the throngs of Yellow-faced have been joined by smaller numbers of White-naped.

On Saturday I led a group from Follow That Bird to see the migration and from our vantage point on Narrow Neck we were able to watch flock after flock of Yellow-faced streaming along the clifftops and at times whooshing past our heads.

Grey Fantails are still in abundance and are virtually everywhere you look. Meanwhile, the honeyeaters and pardalotes continue to fly over my house as I try to work, imbuing the day with a contagious restlessness!
