Well, I don't know how reliable, but for sheer convenience (if you'll
excuse the pun) I had to abandon my attempts to photograph Rock
Warblers at the main car park overlooking the Three Sisters (are there
just three? I can't remember.. in Scotland we have a Five Sisters and a
Seven Sisters, so I get a bit confused!) in the Blue Mountains because
they hopped into the womens' toilets... I was more than a little
concerned that I would probably be arrested on some interesting charge
if I had pursued them, even though the photograph would undoubtedly
have had an amount of novelty value... :))
