Occurrence remarks I haven't seen one this far south before (although I notice one has been logged in Inaturalist down at Merimbula which is another 20km further south). Photos were taken with available light because flash wasn't working. They have had a fair bit of white balance adjustment but to me look pretty correct colour wise.
