Love Geoff’s work based in Newstead. We got to meet him a couple of weeks ago as he was packing up to head home for the AFL grand final. He still had been out photographing before the big game though.

This is the second 2018 nesting attempt for one of my favourite Eastern Yellow Robin families in the Rise and Shine. One of the adults, Blue/Green (R): Orange (L) has featured previously.

The first attempt in late winter was crueller by predators, this time is looking much rosier with three nestlings not far off fledging. The site is somewhat remarkable – about 5 metres off the ground in a large Yellow Box, with the nest bowl placed cryptically in a wedge between the trunk and a piece of peeling bark (this may well have been forged by the adults).
