There are lots of insectivores at work in the bush at the moment – they come in all shapes and sizes. This flock of Varied Sitellas was spotted west of Mia Mia Track yesterday morning. The group of about six contained a number of immatures – evidence of a successful breeding season.
As the sitellas foraged up above a Short-beaked Echidna wandered slowly by. Echidnas become inactive in the autumn, with short bursts of torpor lasting a few days, before they emerge to seek mates in the late winter.
