I also spent time at Callum Brae this morning. saw a total of 5 scarlet robins (4 male, 1 female) near the dams. Lots of thornbills (yellow-rumped and buff-rumped) and weebills.  Although there were only a few corellas, the long-billed/little corella pair which have been sighted in the past were enjoying the day, with frequent flights to and from their favourite tree.
