Sun 20 May Pink Robin Long Hollow Reserve, Beaumaris
Unusual behaviour (flycatching?). Not a male, it was flying between perches on large branches about 4m up in nearly closed woodland by the boardwalk as if flycatching. A bit later I saw it/one lower down by bracken. .

We observed a male Rose Robin at very close quarters at 1130 HRS today. At times he would perch for several minutes at 2 meters distance. In fact on one occasion he flew between my legs. Got excellent photos of him over a 2 hour period.
