In Search for Regent Honeyeater
Capertee Valley is 232km away from Sydney. The journey is approximately 3.5 hours' drive one way. This place is one of the few remaining places where the endangered Regent Honeyeater breeds. Even so, Regent Honeyeater does not seem to occur in good number every year. This year is one of the best seasons ever reported in recent time.

I left home 23 July 2005 at sunrise. As I drove towards the inlands of Sydney, I started to see morning frost in many places between Penrith and Lithgow. It must have been very cold the night before in some areas in Blue Mountains and western Sydney. It was a sight to see a wash of white over the landscapes, but this may not look good to farmers and the frozen slippery paved road is also dangerous to driver.
