Had an interesting trip up to Bendigo (Diamond Hill, Whipstick and
Kamarooka), and Kerang over the Easter weekend. To echo Michael Ramsey?s
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,
