User's notes

seen in 3 areas and heard in another total is for all (2,2,1,1,1) The first pics are of two that were happy to be together, whereas the last 3 pics of another two are when one flew up and started a fight with another in a tree they flew off with beaks locked and we did not see what happened, it was all over in a flash, hence not very good photos. Have added an audio separately which was taken shortly before the fight.
