Author's notes

Following on from previous sightings, it looks like young have fledged. At 7.45pm, female nestling only in hollow, body right out and feet visible, no sign of male juvenile (photos 2, 3 and 4). Three gang gangs flew to adjacent tree, looked like two males and a female. An adult male came down to feed the juvenile (first photo), put his beak to hers, but startled and flew off. The female juvenile flew off with him, straight out of the hollow. Another gang gang flew off at the same time from the nearby tree, and shortly after the fourth gang gang flew to another tree, where we could see that he was a male, but too high to see clearly whether he was the male juvenile.
