    Breeding Code: FL Recently Fledged Young (Confirmed)
  35. Number observed: 3

    Comments: Remarkable change since last week, with hardly any birds sighted or heard - a first in well over a year.. There was a southward movement noted locally last week, and most ironbarks around DF Rd have finished flowering - but this is a dramatic change. White-naped HE even more so, see below.

  39. Number observed: 2
  40. Number observed: 2

    Comments: Last week (and all year) the most abundant bird in and around garden - this entire weekend only 2 birds sighted/heard. See notes for Yellow-faced above for speculation re why, but seems very peculiar given their unwavering abundance since they became dominant in the mass flowering from Aug 2019 onwards

    Comments: At least a few present in huge flock above house - see W-browed notes. First confirmed record for site takes species to 154

  52. Number observed: 350

    Comments: At least 350+ birds mostly of this sp in a huge, high-flying flock above the house about 11.15am. Circling slowly to the northwest. Its likely I only saw the fringes of the flock, as they were so high there were no calls heard. 153rd species recorded for the site.
