Author's notes

Female in hollow looking out, male on branch above. Both flew off and returned about three minutes later with four-five other gang gangs, which settled in nearby trees. Pair returned to hollow, female disappeared inside hollow and after a few minutes looked out again. Norm P has been observing this pair in hollow at least once daily for some time. In third photo male is at top and female at very bottom middle in front of small branch.
