Author's notes

The monitors were photographed on a property on Newington Road, Bywong. The co-ordinates provided are those of Newington Road, not of the exact location where the monitors were photographed. Since the photo was taken in December (2009) it probably shows copulation, Matthew Higgins suggests. Photographer: Thelma Oberdorf. She has given permission for me to submit the photograph on her behalf. It was also published on the Bywong & Wamboin Hub Facebook page on 06 March 2017.
