User's notes

Possibly more. but very difficult to get a good look in the light (or lack of it), and there were Pied currawongs chasing everything that flew, even flying around the tops of the trees to try to scare up insects. Seen with some Jezebels on walk across the top, but none at all seen on return walk about 5 minutes later.
