After some thought and reading how previous records were described, I thought it worth mentioning possible Brown Gerygones at the Botanic Gardens on Saturday morning.  I’m not that confident with thornbills and similar, hence this is only a possible. A small mixed feeding flock a few metres off the ground at the lower end of the rainforest gully, seen from the main path that skirts the gully on its northeast past the cafe, in the early sun, contained silver-eyes and brown thornbills but 2-3 other small birds active in and outside the foliage, 1 of which was seen clearly. Predominant colour grey to grey-brown, darker on top and paler below, no striations, a clear dark grey line through the eye with a whiter eyebrow, and white markings at the end of a grey tail.  Too active for a long view. Didn’t hear a particular call.
