Significant sighting

RyuCallaway1.5K noted:
8 Oct 2017

Excluding a one-off report of a Scarlet HE last year, this is the first year they have been seen in the ACT since 2013 when up to 4 were recorded from a number of locations around the ACT over a few months. This year, a Scarlet Honeyeater was first recorded by Kym Bradley in early September from Tharwa, followed by a record from Jerrabomberra Wetlands and the ANBG on 25 September. They have continued to be reported from ANBG, and at least 5 birds are currently present.

Author's notes

Further to my sighting of a juvenile on 2 October - male and female. From COG reports, numbers seem to be increasing daily.
