and Willie Wagtail, Swallow and Pardalote nesting ...

Topically, I just received the following message from my brother who works
in Laverton and lives in Corio, Geelong, Vic.

"A few Springs ago the Wagtails built a nest just outside my (Office) window
under cover on a horizontal steel member at ceiling height.  I noticed some
commotion one blustery day and it had blow down and the fresh eggs were
broken.  Armed with a ladder and some hook-up wire I twitched the nest back
in place and they returned and raised a clutch of eggs.

They didn't return last year but I've just noticed swallows hanging about
and looks like they are packing the nest with mud.

At home the pardalotes are again nesting in the compacted law clippings
heap.  I don't hear them calling lately, but spend any time in the chook
yard and you notice them coming and going.
