Hi Matthew,

Only just read your email. It's been a poor spring for Regents here and I know of none in the Capertee Valley at the the moment.

This year the White Box flowered well from June to September and the birds were in the valley throughout that time, but after an early start to breeding, things dried up and they disappeared. I haven't seen any since the beginning of October, despite frequent trips to the valley.

However, a reminder to everyone that if you do see any Regents anywhere, please report the sighting to Dean Ingwersen at Birds Australia which will help in understanding and saving these enigmatic creatures. There is still not a lot known about their movements.

Dear birders Just a quick request please before I set off from UK on Friday; has anyone seen any Regent Honeyeaters around the usual areas at Capertee Valley in the last week or so? I know it's a bit late now but one of these years I might manage to catch up with them? I am visiting Lord Howe Is. next week in case anyone is interested in information. Any useful tips for Regents very welcome please. Thank you Matthew Rodgers, UK
