I did the get up early before sunup today, (public holiday in Melbourne), and headed out to the park to settle in early. Got there just on sunup, but with plenty of light in the sky, the birds were already on the move.
It took me about 30 minutes before I heard the Scarlet Robin, in the distance, over there, no, over there, no over there I think. He moves that fast.
As luck would have it, I located him on one side of the security fence, with me on the other. No hope of getting closer, and he was moving about in the tops of the trees. With the sun up, the light was great but he was just a bit to far away for great detail.
But he does look great, is very quick, and is now covering more than a kilometre of the park, as I found him again later in the morning way down the range.
