Thanks to the ‘eagle-eye’ of local observer Ros Hart for this terrific observation.
Last year a pair of Eastern Rosellas nested along Jockey Drive at Newstead – see post. This year a pair, almost certainly the one from 2011, are doing their best to raise a brood in the same location. The site, an ancient hollow in the form of a fence post, is a typical choice for this species. The following sequence shows their progress from hatching … fingers crossed that we’ll have a successful outcome!
