A couple of weeks ago I wrote the bit below. Heard the same call today and it was a Spotted Pardalote.

Does my description fit a young bird?

A bird (which I could not locate) was giving a mournful beep-beep,
apparently from the top of a gum tree but it may have been ventriloqual and
lower down. It was rather like a slightly higher-pitched and curtailed Little Grassbird
