Hi Julie,
I reported a Rose Robin from Campbell Park to Eremaea (with photo). I have seen it twice since, most recently the day before yesterday. It has been in the same general area each time I looked for it. Twice it was more or less alone (one or two other birds nearby) but once it was with a mixed flock and on that occasion was very active and confiding. On each occasion I have been able to photograph it.

I suggest you look immediately upslope from the main building (the narrow entrance opening is the easiest starting point). Walk upslope until you intersect a trench running across the slope. Justr past that the power line angles across the slope. In the immediate area between the trench and the power line is where I have seen the male Rose Robin. But it does range a bit out from there also. I have not heard it call. 

Good luck,

Peter Valentine

Hi All,

I'm just wondering if anyone has seen rose or pink robins in the past week or 2?
I'd also been very keen to see more hooded robins.

Any information or advice would be much appreciated.
