On Sunday 17 March there were few ducks or waterbirds of any kind at Banyule Swamp. However along the riverbank I found myself in a flock of Silvereyes - very flighty and continuously moving and calling - there must have been well over a hundred, probably many more, passing from one group of wattles to another. None stayed long enough to see flank colour. I think they were probably newly-arrived migrants.They were accompanied by more confiding Grey Fantails - all very dark specimens - and a pair of Crested Shrike-tits - now very much less common than they used to be in the 1970s.
