Red Wattlebirds on the move

I have just retruned from my regular bird-walk around our property with our two black Labs. – We live on 25 acres of mature native woodland on the outskirts of Armidale, NSW. After a couple of days of very welcome rain the skies were very overcast so I was very surprised to encounter hordes of birds. Most interesting was a flock of 15-20 Red Wattlebirds (see below) clearly on the move and flying southeast. The light was so poor that the identity of many of honeyeaters was not possible but among those I could identify were goodly numbers of Grey Fantails, thornbills, a flock of Varied Sittellas, loads of Fuscous Honeyeaters plus Noisy Friarbirds and the first White-naped Honeyeater I have seen here in a while.
