Some joy: bringing the birds back

I heard the twitter of superb blue wrens from the silver coastal saltbush near the town houses at the western end of Beacon Cove.
These small birds have weak powers of flight, and need to be able to retreat to cover easily. They are insectivorous and dart from their cover to feed.
The wrens are now found from Beacon Cove, through Perce White Reserve and the Webb Dock trail to Westgate Park.
Thanks to Bill Mackenzie for this photo of a male in full breeding plumage taken [I think] in Westgate Park.
