A rare breeding record for this rare visitor to the ACT

Author's notes

4 adults - 2 males and 2 females and 5 young. Unfortunately the sun went behind the clouds as we arrived so the light was pretty bad, didn't see the female with youngsters until later so the light was even worse. Sorry for poor photos.
