I would be grateful if anyone could confirm my id.

I've heard some bleating went to investigate and found the poor critter hanging upside down with the mother bouncing around in full panic.
Anyway I sent the mother away, cut the wires and let the little one free. Two minutes later she was back into the mother's pouch and off they went.

Crimson/Eastern hybrids generally have far more red. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-04-14/rare-hybrid-rosellas-spotted-in-canberra/7326060
But they also can hybridise with other species, such as ringnecks. The colour & patterning there is very similar to an Eastern/Ringneck hybrid.

Today while pruning the rampant Hardenbergia I happened to see dozens of tiny little native bees, I may have done something right in providing nesting habitat as I've never seen them here before
