Crikey! the things you learn when you don't pay attention for a decade! Most of my current posts are retro from ten years or so ago. since then I have been concentrating more on spiders and beetles. Had no idea that the humble Variegated fairy-wren had ben lumped in with three of its close clan. Glad you are on the ball Liam, thanks for that!
