Ricka-ticka-ticka-tick, that's how my Birds of Australia book describes the 'varied brief but melodious phrases of the Willie Wagtail, a 20 cm (8 inch) medium-small, fantail flycatcher.
While walking through the sensory garden, the first thing I really noticed in the heat of the day was the intense 'lemon' scent in the air. In the foreground on the left is a rosemary shrub, noted for rememberance, another pungent scented plant.

foreground, left, is a lemon myrtle
Australian native Grevillea
hybridised eucalypt, suited to the home garden
it would flit off to the ground and snatch an insect, then return for another shot
sorry, I'll have to move on; you've been such a charmer! Byeeeee
Later addition: You can hear the willie wagtail from this Birds in Backyards fact page. Look down the right-hand side for Mp3
