A brief visit to the National Gallery sculpture gardens today at lunch and no sooner had I wandered to the mist pool and the YTHE almost hit me in the head as it fluttered around catching insects.
It seemed to prefer the dense shrubs between the mist pool and the lake, diving into one every so often and also foraging in the middle layer rather than in the tree canopy. Again most of the other honeyeater species were present albeit in smaller numbers than last month - White-naped, White-plumed, Yellow-faced, Fuscous (only 1) and Wattlebirds. There were 3 Black Ducks swimming around the pool. When a bus load of kids came through it was time to leave.
