The last visitor before lunch was this Zebra Finch. You may remember me telling you it was a bit of a conundrum, as they're not found in that corner of Western Australia, the nearest populations being over 100 kms away.

We quizzed a family nearby, who had an aviary of assorted birds, but they hadn't had any escapees.

100kms is nothing in Australia. Only one? Maybe an escapee from somewhere else. Escapees are listed for Albany in eBird. Anyway, a lovely shot.
