At Callum Brae, at about 2pm today, I saw a striated pardalote apparently going 
into a hole in the bank of the gully, which runs down to the farmer's dam.  No, 
it was not going into the hole, it seemed to be digging the hole.  It flew out 
and another pardalote joined it.  They displayed, stretching their 
wings--beautiful markings

I also saw 2 pairs of red rumped parrots investigating holes in a tree close to 
where the trillers nested at the end of last summer.

Great that Spring has sprung
