Author's notes

I arrived at the site at about 7.15am, when this male flew up into a tree away from the hollow and chased a pair of crimson rosellas a few times. He then flew to the hollow tree calling. I could also hear the gang gangs calling from the direction of hollow 51. This male waited until 7.30am when he flew to the hollow and entered. There was no other activity between then and when I left around 8.15am.
