Things have been insane for the last 4 days, we had two semis bringing in sand non-stop for a day and a half, one guy on the earth mover, another guy on the excavator and another guy on the roller. Apparently they have brought in and compacted about 450 square metres of sand - holy cow!
I've found yet another new bird and finally managed to get a focused photo of him as he flitted about. This is a Western Spinebill, a nectar feeder. That thrills me no end as this is the first nectar bird I've seen - our native bush here doesn't seem to have much in the way of nectar plants, so most of the plants I've put in are nectar plants, as I want to encourage more birds. This little fellow has been visiting my heap of pot plants, some of which are flowering and dripping with nectar. He loves kangaroo paws, a lovely red grevillea olivacea and the pineapple sage that I'm waiting to plant in my house garden later on.
