This morning at 10am, there were 4 White-throated Needletails flying west over Katoomba NSW. This is close to the latest I've seen them - usually the last ones come through here around the end of March or 1st April. However in general we've had relatively few needletail sightings this season in the Blue Mountains.

Also of interest were 16 Gang-gang Cockatoos seen this morning in west Katoomba.

The honeyeater migration is now in full swing with thousands of Yellow-faced with a few White-naped moving through yesterday and today.

And for anyone wanting to see Bassian Thrush, there is a pair regularly feeding on the lawn at Leura Cascades picnic area, very approachable.
