Stockton Channel

Walking along Stockton Channel there were constant flocks of birds overtaking us.  Most were Noisy Friarbirds, though my practice on the bird counting game didn’t help me determine whether they were a flock of around one hundred birds doing laps, or whether there were thousands of birds. Smaller flocks included Scaly Breasted and Rainbow Lorikeets, Yellow-faced Honeyeaters and mixed Godwits and Curlew. White-breasted Woodswallows were still there in significant numbers, and a young Sea Eagle was being harassed by Ravens.

The Bird Atlas has animated migration maps for 35 different bird species across Eastern Australia.
