Over weeks we watched two Willy Wagtails swish and dart around our pot plants and outside window ledges thinking they were hunting bugs and flies to eat.
However one morning we discovered what they’d done. They had collected masses of fragile cobwebs and glued them into a mud packed nest on a low branch of a Tibouchina tree in the front garden where three chubby babies were sitting in or rather on it. As we peeped at them each day the babies were quite nonchalant though mum and dad shrieked from a nearby branch. One baby let us gently rub his chest, lifting his head and closing his eyes in enjoyment! So quickly though the kids left home off to see the world and left behind a very empty nest!
