There is currently a flock of at least 25 Regent Honeyeaters showing well along Crown Station Road in the Capertee Valley (NSW). They have been at this site for over two months now and while flowering of suitable plants has finished they are now feeding on lerps. White Box are just starting to flower at some sites in the valley. Volunteers at the tree planting weekend on 6-7 May had great views of these birds.

Aside from this, the weekend was again a great success with 4000 trees and shrubs planted on two properties. The next planting weekend will be on 12-13 August.

As the weekend that has just passed was the National Survey weekend for those two Threatend Species........ The Central Coast Regent Honeyeater Volunteer Operations Group was organised to survey 54 Central Coast (NSW) sites last weekend, and while I am yet to hear from all participants, no one has reported any Regent Honeyeaters or Swift Parrots as yet. It looks as if the box/ironbark trees are flowering sufficiently to keep Regent Honeyeaters inland this autumn .....
