Author's notes

Spotted this male sitting in the entrance to the hollow. He was there for approximately 5 minutes until I looked down at my camera. When I looked back up I couldn't see him. I didn't hear any noise so I'm not sure whether he flew off or went further into the hollow. Watched for another 15 minutes but didn't see him again. Will check again this week.
