Author's notes

Following on from previous sightings at this hollow this summer and previous summer, pair arrived at nearby tree around 7.40pm, waited for a few minutes, then both flew to nest tree branches. Male entered hollow first, some muffled feeding noises heard, then he moved to a nearby branch and female entered hollow. About eight minutes later, the male flew to a nearby tree where a gang gang pair was chewing bark at a hollow, there was some calling back and forth, he returned to his nest tree, and then a few minutes later he flew off together with this second pair. The female remained in the hollow tree.
