As for a single Varied Sittella sitting in the very top of a tall dead gum, well usually in small groups but seeing one doesn’t mean it was alone or that it wasn’t just separated from others.

a flock of around 20-25 busy hawking over Narrabundah Hill this afternoon.


also my first snake of spring  - a nice 1 metre Red Bellied Black.  time to start carrying that snake bandage!!


finally – well away from me - what I think was a single Varied Sittella sitting in the very top of a tall dead gum.  Hard to get a good look at before it flew off but it seemed to have that distinctive Sittella shape in flight.  would it be totally wrong to see a single bird of this species?
