I went for another walk in Namadgi today and saw more Scarlet Robins.  Very 
orange Scarlet Robins!

The area was called Yankee Hat.  I also had the experience of seeing a Robin 
and a dozen Yellow Rumped Thornbills flying in to drink from a puddle on top of 
a rock while I was standing only a couple of metres away.  Unfortunately, they 
were so spooked by my proximity I couldn't get a decent photo, and my video 
camera was packed away.  Other birds in the area - Grey Shrike Thrush, Superb 
Lyrebird, Grey Butcherbird, Eastern Rosella, Australian Magpie, Yellow Robin, 
Australian Raven, Superb Fairy-Wren and Crimson Rosella.  There were other 
birds I was unable to identify including some with very (to me) unusual calls.  
Some may have been White Eared Honeyeaters which seem reasonably common in 

Heaps of Grey Kangaroos and Red Necked Wallabies, rabbits, and sadly a dead 
wombat on the side of the road. I also saw a couple of dead wallabies with very 
dark fur - wondering if they could have been Rock Wallabies.
