Hi Edwin and all

I was chatting to Allan McBride last night and he has also had the gerygones at Careel Bay.

I believe that these birds are summer migrants to these southern parts. They've also been reported at Towra Point (Botany Bay). Perhaps they're at Homebush Bay too?

Happy birding


Hi Ricki et al

I have had a few Mangrove Gerygones at Careel Bay a few years ago but
not sure if they are resident there. Anyone seen them there as well in
recent years?

G'day bird lovers

Whilst in the mangroves at Careel Bay, Avalon, this morning I
observed 4 Mangrove Gerygones (heard several more at the same time),
indicating that they are currently present in very good numbers.
These birds were reported at this location some years back and I am
unaware of any recent reports.

Also had lots (more than 6) of Brush Bronzewings calling at Deep
Creek, Narrabeen, early this morning. This was over a 300 metre
stretch, so you could say that they're also about in good numbers
right now - or at least vocal enough to find them easier than usual.

Happy birding
