    These very active little birds are a real challenge to photograph. This one has been visiting the birdbath with a crowd of our small birds (Thornbills and Scrubwrens) each day for a few weeks now but this was the first time I've been able to photograph him this year. I think this is a male, as his head markings are so vivid (male and female have similar markings, but the female's are less distinct).

    So excited to welcome this little beauty back for the winter! The first sighting of the year is a real 'Ooooooh!' moment. This individual is beautifully coloured, in his prime by the looks of it. First sighting, he dropped into the birdbath behind the (mostly) snake-proof fence. Photos taken through a kitchen window. Next two are the next day, taken outside. All feels right with this tiny part of the world when the first Rose Robin returns...

    The Celerywoods (Polyscias elegans) are fruiting...this Brown Cuckoo-Dove appeared to be testing for ripeness. The fruit mustn't have been quite ready, as he flew away again almost immediately. Maybe next week!
