Good find Nicki. I know Suzi is very keen to get June sightings for this species, to make a full twelve months of observations of them flying. So now we have it.

Yes, I was a bit surprised to see them persisting into June but there have been 1-3 at the top of Mt Painter every time I have been up there this month.
