I have just spent about two days around Barraba/Bingara in the course of work 
and took the opportunity to have a good look for any Regent HEs.

There is some very heavy flowering ironbarks in parts of the region (partic. 
Gulf Creek and the area around the sign on the Bundarra Road) but no Regents 
despite getting some serious neck strain. While the area around the flowering 
trees is full of the usual suspects (Friarbirds, Little and Musk Lories, 
Fuscous, Black-chinned etc.) hours of walking produced no Regents. The Barraba 
Info centre had no sightings in the book though a South African couple felt 
they may (even they were dubious apparently) have seen one in Mille Creek. I 
checked this with no result. Has anyone seen them up that way?

One property owner in Bingara did report that she had resident pair but I was 
unable to confirm this.

An interesting and reliable report in Bingara was Barking Owls. The 
unmistakeable "screaming woman" call has been reported in the Gwydir valley 
near Bingara. The first person to hear it was unsure whether to call the police 
or our local branch people! Are they seen often in this area?
