Hi All,
For those interested (and that seems to be very few, come on, surely some more people are?), I saw the female Orange Chat again yesterday at 5:50pm, and from 6:10-6:30pm.  Same area as mentioned in an earlier email.  This was after two previosuly unsucessful attempts.  
Definitely an Orange Chat female - yesterday offered different (overcast) lighting conditions which showed the colours differently; the rump appeared more orange, and the eye is deifinitely dark.  Although there are lots of Silvereyes and Superb Fairy-wrens flitting about there, it's still quite distinctive in colour from some angles, and the typical chat style of flight is also a giveaway.  Trying to look through all the grazing horses offered a new challenge!
Please see earlier email for more details, and I can send people further directions if you email me (or phone 04040293536).  Cheers.
