Just catching up on a backlog of emails so a late reply to this thread. Keith, there were several Scarlet Honeyeaters at Scheyville NP in the Hawkesbury on Twitchathon weekend (1st Nov) and the week prior to that.

I think there have been more than usual in the Blue Mountains lately: e.g. Megalong Valley (as per my earlier posting). I've also seen them at Blackheath last week and on the Wiggins Track at Springwood yesterday.

However, there seem to be fewer than usual in the Capertee Valley. Not surprising given the dry conditions and lack of flowering thereat the moment.

Hi Russell, thetas where they are, there have been very few in the Hawkesbury this year. They are usually numerous in Mitchell Park but have not recorded one as yet this year.
