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
