Alison, this looks like a Brown-headed Honeyeater to me. Did you hear the call? They are quite different. John

Sorry, yes you are right. I had it in my head that it was a White-naped looking at the photo on my camera on location so didn't consider anything else once I got it on my computer. The weather was pretty gloomy and they were high in the tree.
