While walking past a broom bush this morning we heard much twittering.  Looking a little closely we found a nest, but didn't peer very closely for fear of disrupting things.  I spent about an hour in total watching the bush from a fair distance but didn't see any birds approach the vicinity of the nest.  Reflecting on the species seen around the bush in the past and reading descriptions of nests in various books I have concluded that it is a white-browed scrubwren nest.  The nest is the right shape and material but is about 2.3m off the ground which seems on the high side.  I've attached a small photo: can anyone confirm the identitiy of the nest builder or suggest any other species?
