Author's notes

While looking intently at a tree I had seen them at before, I failed completely to see the female outside of the hollow, but sitting quietly. The Striated Pardalote, mentioned in another post, flew to the tree, which was enough to disturb the female Gang-gang, making her move so I noticed her. She then went straight into the hollow, with the male emerging a little while later. He then flew off to the north-north-west. (Roughly the direction I had seen another male fly off to. Unsure if they were heading to the Arboretum or some other known food source.) I also noticed a number of flies coming out of the hollow at this change of shift. I do not know if this is normal. Birds normally do not soil their nests so maybe the flies were just avoiding the heat.
