Author's notes

I arrived at this tree at 7.05pm, with nothing happening until 7.13pm when this male emerged from the hollow and stayed just outside the hollow until 7.23pm when he went back in. At 7.36pm he emerged again and sat outside the hollow. Two crimson rosellas landed nearby and watched him for about a minute before leaving. He went back in the hollow at 7.47pm. I then walked back down to the carpark, hearing other gang gangs flying around about 7.55pm
