Peter and Adrienne had got a bit ahead of me, when I spotted movement in a tree. Spent a few minutes chasing it about and finally came up with this picture.

I knew it was a new bird for me, but couldn't work it out. Peter immediately identified it for me as a New Holland Honeyeater.

There are so many honeyeaters in Australia, that I hadn't, so far, even looked at the page in my book that this one was on!
