Author's notes

Watched them on Monday with a snake at least twice, but didn't have the right lens. There were three at one stage, at least one of which seemed to be a juvenile chasing the parent for a bite of the snake, but with at least one being fed in the nest. Today, initially saw two, one with a very light coloured snake, but one saw one come back later with a black snake. Then took it off to feed the nearby nest.
