Thu 9Regent Honeyeater
Lake Cathie NSW
While birding at Lake Cathie NSW 2 Regent Honeyeaters landed in a flowering gum . Pictures were taken and we have seen them there before (Moderator's note: I am assuming that this spot is the commencement of the Lake Cathie Village Track where they were reported on the 25th and 30th June 2015.AKM).

Tue 7Regent Parrot
Wemen area
One of the most amazing birding experiences we have ever witnessed happened on Ryan Rd about 1 km before Wemen coming from Hattah. At about 4.45pm, we watched a very conservative estimate of around 800-1000 Regent Parrots fly southwards in small flocks of between 10-40 birds for over 30 minutes, some stopping to rest in the trees on the road. They were obviously heading to a roosting place. It was a constant line of traffic for this time and it was so exciting to witness such great numbers of this endangered bird! Excuse the poor photo as it was getting dark and I don't use a flash!
