Good News (I think).  At the nest excursion a few weeks ago, Anthony’s Blue Team found that WT Gerygone nest being assembled  in a leafy sapling by the fence.  Yesterday it looked deserted and seriously damaged, tossing and spinning in the wind, just another victim of the high level of predation that goes on.  However after adults were seen carrying food to it, a closer look showed at least one chick clinging to the torn base (snap 1).  Snap 2 – more hole than nest.   Things look more normal in the other two.
