Continuing the discussion about migration in the Blue Mountains - Yesterday I 
stood in the backyard here in the mid-mountains whilst hundreds of Silvereyes 
flew around me - there was a constant stream of them swooping up to the oak 
trees at the back and then down to smaller trees in my garden and up again, 
they all seemed very frantic, the noise was deafening - it was an awe-inspiring 
experience. I just stood there while they streamed around me. It was DRIZZLING, 
very miserable weather.

We also saw the Yellow-faced HEs at Blackheath (Evan's lookout) on Saturday 
morning, though it was during a VERY brief sunny moment. They were accompanied 
by the White-naped HEs. A thrilling sight to see them streaming overhead and 
following the cliffline.

happy autumn migration,
