Subscribers to Natural Newstead blog must be wondering what’s happening in the bird world while Geoff Park is away. Well at my place in Palmerston Street I’m thrilled to be watching a Red Wattlebird sitting on the nest only 2m off the ground, in a Feathery Hop-bush. The nesting bird flies up to the Yellow Box tree above when I get too close, so here is a quick shot of the nest and now I will leave it in peace. Red Wattlebirds have been a constant presence in my garden, but this is the first time in my 22 years in Newstead that I’ve had the privilege of seeing them build a nest, line it, and sit in it.
