Plumthorpe TSR


Restless Flycatcher

Plumthorpe Travelling Stock Reserve is 16.5km west of Barraba on the Trevallyn Road. The Manilla River winds through the centre with access roads either side. There were trees starting to flower and a number of different honeyeaters were harvesting the early nectar, including White-plumed, Fuscous, Yellow-Tufted Brown-Headed, and White-Naped. Dozens of Double-Barred and Red-Browed Finches chattered up and down the river and a pair of Restless Flycatchers put on a display.

  1. Trevallyn sounds a bit of a Cornish name there Marj - possibly from the mass exodus of Cornish miners in the 1800's
