On my rounds

After a week away it was nice to be home and have a chance to catch up with some familiar places.

Eastern Spinebills are enjoying the Grevillea and Correa flowering in the garden – this female also taking a liking to the flowering Yellow Gum.

Meanwhile down at Newstead Natives our favourite family of Tawny Frogmouths is back in residence.

That’s the male at right

I then went in search of Flame Robins at the Newstead Cemetery. No luck there but Superb Fairy-wrens provided the colour and movement.
