On Red Hill this afternoon I saw this YRT nest right by the path. Note the false cup nest on top (it was even lined with feathers &c) and the actual nest inside the hole below (to the left of the red twig).

Red Hill is horribly dry, if it wasn't surrounded by well-watered suburbs I don't anything would be living there atm.
