ON THE ROAD — At about 8-9cm in length the Weebill (Smicrornis breviostris) enjoys the distinction of being Australia’s smallest bird. Usually such a small bird is hard to photograph in its usual haunt in the tops of trees, but at Newcastle Waters the elevated approaches to the bridge put us a little above the eucalypts in which this little bird was foraging, probably for insects and lerps.
