Yesterday at Hall I located a Leaden Flycatcher nest containing very small young. While the parents were obviously feeding young and at one point the female ate a small faecal pellet, the young were so small that they could not be seen when being fed. According to the information on the web site for all years, there are only two COG records for Leaden Flycatcher nests with young in February and only two ‘on nest’ records for February so it is a late breeding record. The area was so dry it was surprising that any birds were breeding but dependent young buff-rumped and yellow-rumped thornbills were also located.
