Scarlet and gold

It only takes a tiny pool to form and the birds will come from everywhere. This puddle, formed from Friday’s rain along Tangey’s Lane, proved irresistible to the local birds … Yellow-tufted, White-naped, New Holland, White-plumed and Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, Eastern Yellow Robin and the highlights – a pair of Crested Shrike-tits and a male Scarlet Robin, all visited within minutes as I stood nearby. Little and Purple-crowned Lorikeets could be seen and heard buzzing overhead.
