Significant sighting

Only our second Rosernberg's record for Tidbinbilla Reserve

Author's notes

The tail banding was slightly rufous so assume it was Rosenberg's rather than a Lace.

The large number of bands (around 20) and their thin width (at most 2-3cm) also indicates that this is a Rosenbergs
