> Hi all,
> Had an interesting trip up to Bendigo (Diamond Hill, Whipstick and Kamarooka),
> and Kerang over the Easter weekend. To echo Michael Ramsey¹s posting on
> Chiltern, there was extensive eucalypt flowering in Whipstick NP and Kamarooka
> SP with large numbers of honeyeater and woodswallow.
> In one area of Kamarooka, I recorded 7spp of honeyeater, the highlight being a
> single Purple-gaped Honeyeater (along with Brown-headed, White-plumed,
> Yellow-tufted, Yellow-plumed, Yellow-faced and Red Wattlebird).
> Chestnut-rumped Heathwren was also recorded here.
> Shy Heathwren was common on Skylark road (Whipstck).
> As Michael mentioned, there were also large numbers of woodswallow (Masked,
> White-browed and Dusky) in many areas.
> A pair of Black Falcon near Kerang topped off an excellent day,
> Cheers,
> Greg
