Hi all,

Have been working too hard lately, and had to take a flex day to get rid of 
built up hours - so instead of writing essays, I chose to spend it birding in 
the Hawkesbury! Many highlights, but the one probably of interest to any Sydney 
birders was a party of 3 Speckled Warblers feeding in a mixed flock at 
Castlereagh NR. is where I saw them, and here is a shot of one of the birds.

Can I also ask for an opinion on what bird this is - also seen at Castlereagh 
this morning? I'm thinking it's 
a juvenile or female Flame Robin, based on the size, bill shape, light 
horizontal bar on wings, and suggestion of red on the belly. I have a poor shot 
of its back if that will help with any ID. Any help much appreciated. There 
were 2 of these birds around, but no male.
