This pair of Willie Wagtails was observed putting the finishing touches on a nest at the weekend on the Moolort Plains. The nest was in a somewhat unusual spot, just 30cm above the ground in a small Yellow Box. Both adults were bringing cobwebs which were then delicately woven into the rim. Their method was intriguing – the web was gathered to create a chaotic adornment on the head and bill, before being patiently redistributed around the nest. I expect eggs will be laid very soon.
