    The second is a grey fantail nest. The “tail” is the defining feature! I’ve seen one before. A beautiful piece of chocolate construction!! The first …? I’ve no idea!

  2. Hard to tell the first one from the photo. Could it be a processionary caterpillar home?

  3. The top structure looks like some sort of caterpillar pupating nest?

    The 2nd reminds me of a Willy Wagtail nest – just begun – they often have that tail to draw the eye down and away …??

  5. I think the first one is a Weebill nest, and the second, my first thoughts to be a spider cocoon but I think its a Grey Fantail.
    You’re pictures make my day. Thanks Geoff

  6. Think the top is a Mistletoe Bird, and going with Grey Fantail for the second one.
    Its a great time of the year isn’t it.
