Hi Michael,

Your observations are interesting as it appears that on the NSW North Coast the winter migrants are as common, if not more common , than usual. We have had an unprecedented number of Noisy Pitta and Satin Bowerbird records on the lowlands of the Clarence Valley, Crimson Rosellas at low altitude and Tasmanian race Grey Fantails and Golden Whistlers (based on tail-wing ratios during banding) being common. I would have thought that the cold winter would have sent most Victorian migrants northwards.
