Dear Birders,

I made a very well-timed foray outside yesterday - it was drizzling but had to 
get out of the house as was working from home, so resolved to visit a neighbour 
- got halfway down the driveway, noticed lots of twittering and movement so 
raced back for the bins.

So glad I did, was treated to a dozen or so Silver-eyes, half a dozen or so 
Yellow-faced HEs feeding in the Banksias, a Lewin's Honeyeater, Grey Fantail, 
Spinebill and the cream of the crop - a male Rose Robin (a lifer for me). These 
all in my front garden. (The Yellow-faced HEs were also lifers, though I'd seen 
them flying over in flocks it was the first time I'd identified them 
positively). The birds didn't stay long - just makes you wonder what we miss 
every day!!

So don't forget to look out the window or pop outside now and then - just in
