At the ponds near Kingston Foreshore last Thursday (10th August) I watched a pair of Yellow Rumped Thornbills apparently feeding young.  They went on several occasions from parts of the little park to a specific part of a nearby tall tree not carrying nesting material and on one occasion, when quite close to me, carrying an insect.  I had no binoculars with me and couldn’t spot a nest so I cannot be absolutely sure that there was a nest or young.
