I have had similar close encounters in exactly the same spot on a number of 
occasions and I do believe that the proximity to the homes may make these 
particular birds a little less shy than usual. I know some people who live in 
one of the homes that back onto the track and they certainly have Alberts 
Lyrebirds frequently visit their garden. Without a doubt Witches Falls is the 
best place I know to see Alberts and one can usually expect to spot one on a 
visit there, particularly when the crowds arent around.
