Seen on the woodland walk behind the Namadgi Visitors Information Centre this morning. A most obliging bird, posed, called, moved from tree to tree in the sunlight, showed off its diagnostic undertail coverts, probed in a tree trunk and ate a caterpillar-like object it found. A great photo-opportunity but I was, alas, without a camera.  For anyone passing the VIC at the weekend, it might be worth stopping briefly to check if it is still there – and if so to record it for the blitz. Lots of other action as usual in that spot which would be a really good site for a beginner to check out for the blitz. b
