Hi Mike, I sense your hesitation about confirming this one. Did the nest not look right or was there no ant activity? Cheers,

Not hesitation. I loaded several sightings and missed confirming this one. Just a minor issue of the delay between uploading a sighting and seeing it available.

The distribution map is temporarily out of action but I think this is the furthest up Mugga Mugga that I have recorded. So far :)
