I'm guessing at about 20 WBWS at Namadgi Visitor Centre this morning - males and females, and at least two dependent young.  One newly fledged bird trying to sort out how to get those wings working - getting a few metres at a time, hopping further up its landing spot, then launching again to land in lower part of next tree.  It was being "guarded" by male and female adults, with the female swooping at me several times as I passed by - but being very much more determined in swooping nearby magpies. In the woodland along first couple of hundred metres of the path up the mountain across the road from the back of the visitor centre woodland, a diamond firetail and red-browed finches, and a female scarlet robin.  a couple of young and fluffy noisy friarbirds as well as many WT gerygones closer to the visitor centre.
