A wander around the botanic gardens today produced a recently fledged Bassian Thrush with accompanying parent. Both were very confiding, the dependent youngster constantly calling, and staying within 1-2 metres. Haven’t seen any mention on this chatline. Does anyone know if this species is now being recorded breeding annually at the gardens?

I have had a Restless Flycatcher present at my work in Tuggeranong again over the past week or two. Probably the same bird as previous years. Interestingly, it seems to spend some mornings picking insects from the multi-storey building. The resident Willie Wagtail isn’t too happy it’s hanging around.
