Great find Alison, about 9 days earlier than when Con Boekel observed a
normal pair nest building there last year (that nest failed).

The literature also indicates that only the female builds and broods.

A female Flame Robin is nest building in Campbell Park not far from
where the nest was last year.  There was a fully coloured male nearby
but he didn't help with the nest while I was watching.
