Flames at dusk

Winter must be just around the corner.

I spotted my first Flame Robins for the year late on Sunday afternoon – a small party of males and ‘brown birds’ – females and immature males, near the Newstead Cemetery. The first wave of birds are most likely heading north but we’ll be graced with others over the colder months until they depart in spring.

  1. I must have been lucky. I spotted a pair about 3 weeks ago at Moonlight Flat near Castlemaine.
