Author's notes

A young Australian hobby. It got rapidly moved on multiple times by the Currawong. It was then found later in a similar part of the reserve before it was hounded relentlessly by Australian ravens.

Interesting to see a juvenile again. There must be an active nest somewhere on Red Hill or close by, but the exact location remains elusive thus far (for me at least anyway).
