A couple of years ago, I was fortunate enough to find a population of Chestnut-rumped Heathwrens at a neaby sub-division. At the time there was much interest from members of my local bird club, Canberra Ornithologists Group (COG), as these birds are quite rare in the area. I thought a re-visit was overdue to see how the heathwrens are faring. To my surprise, they are thriving - I saw about 6 birds there. Unfortunately, some of the blocks are now being built on, so no doubt this little island of perfect heathwren habitat where they are will become quite disturbed in years to come, but hopefully the new owners will be kind to their blocks and not clear too much, and not put horses and other livestock on them, or trail bikes!
