The red wattlebirds fledged a single chick in my GBS site either on 31/7 or 1/8 (and by 4/8 it was in a tree over 50 m away) while the masked lapwing is sitting on 2 eggs on a lawn in Percy Cres Chapman.
Saw a pair of Pied Currawongs exhibiting mating behaviour yesterday, including copulating, selecting sticks and bringing them to a nest site.  In the midst of this a Grey Currawong arrived, the first for the winter.  As a follow up to the recent discussions on this list there seemed to be limited, if any, interaction between these two species, with the bigger bird largely ignored by the pair, despite it calling loudly.
