G'day Birders, the red bloodwoods (Corymbia gummifera) have just stated 
flowering the lower blue mountains and as always are attracting a lot of birds. 
The local rainbow lorrikeet numbers seem to have increased but have also been 
joined by musk lorrikeets, an unusual visitor for the lower mountains. I saw 
two groups feeding in blossom this moring whilst walking the kids to school, 
probalby about 8 - 10 birds all up.

The scarlet honeyeaters have also become much more vocal in the last week.

And the numbers of flying foxes seem to be on the increase, they also like the 
bloodwood flowers.
