At Tidbinbilla, a day later on Sunday, during an hour or so walking on the Fishing Gap Trail, there was constant calling from White-eared Honeyeaters in sight most of the way. A real 'multitude' - interrupted by a Spotted Pardalote pair at one point.
There was a single male Flame Robin near the entrance, and a large flock of  Robins in short grasslands/scrub of the Turkey Hill area (just across the road from the Gibraltar Rocks trail)- the male nearest the road appeared to be a Scarlet.
Scarlet Robin
And Marnix's ([canberrabirds] Tidbinbilla - 17 August ) Emu with 4 youngsters was also now in this area, strolling within 10 m of the road, rather than near the entrance as they were the previous weekend.
