Author's notes

Mobbed relentlessly by 3 Magpies before it retreated south towards Mugga. Also it definitely roosted on Red Hill on evening of 8 April, and spotted hunting over Red Hill on 1 April 2019.

Thanks Roy very interested in any sightings of Little Eagles at this time of year. The six birds we have trackers on (males and fledglings) have all left the ACT. So keen to get any reports of birds seen in our region. Looks like teh usual female what do you think

Hi Michael, yes I think so. When it roosted on the 8th, it moved from a tree at the southern end of Red Hill to Mt Davidson, so I might need to pay more attention to the southern end. Cheers, Roy :-)

Thanks Roy - Paul Williamson also reported seeing a LE in the southern end
