Author's notes

Noisy Miners very agitated but I couldn't locate the source of irritation for a good 10-20min. It was quite tolerant of my presence once I found it. It made a few hunting attempts at the Noisy Miners, so maybe a dispersing juvenile learning the ropes. Content to share its posse with the local Hobby. I returned to the same spot the next day but couldn't see it. I've penciled this in as a breeding record.
