User's notes

I was at the car park on the corner of King St and Denison St in Deakin when I heard gang-gangs nearby. I had my camera with me and had some time to pass so I followed the sounds past the north side of Alfred Deakin High School and I ended up at the top end of Napier Close, where the street loops around a median strip full of shrubs etc. There I spotted two gang-gangs feeding on cotoneaster berries - the male was high up in the shrub, possibly keeping an eye out for threats from above, while the female stayed down quite low, allowing me to get as close as about 1.5m away from her. I stayed there for 45 minutes, taking photos, watching them and talking to them and they didn't seem in the slightest bit worried by my presence. I saw another pair fly over at one point - they had been somewhere close by (maybe closer to the school) and they looked to be heading in the direction of the Mint and the oval.
