Further to my message a few days ago about whether the Grey-fronted
Honeyeater is known to eat dirt or fine grit, I found the nest being
constructed the following day on the other side of the building.  So the
grit may well have had something to do with egg laying.  There are a lot of
Brown Honeyeaters around, but they seem to hide their nests a lot better
and I haven't found many of their nests over the years, whereas I always
seem to locate the Grey-fronted Honeyeater nests.
