I was in the Royal NP last Monday on the Curra Moors track and there was a group of 10-20 passing through every few minutes, mainly yellow faced HE as far as I could tell. During a 20 minute survey on the cliff tops I estimate about 200-300 passed through all heading north along the coast. The New Holland HEs were busy foraging and took little notice of the birds heading north. I stood still in the path of one flock and they flew right by me, some less than a metre away.
