No musk lorikeets for me to report, but a m & f pair of gang gangs seen about 4pm yesterday in the big gum trees around the Wanniassa scout hall car park. I'd also heard (presumably the same) 2 being chased by red wattlebirds a few streets away a couple of hours earlier. I think this pair reside around the Catholic primary school in Wanniassa.

On Wednesday 23rd at the Kent St tennis courts I saw a pair of Musk lorikeets engaged in mutual preening. On Friday 25th I heard Musks there but couldn’t see them.


Also on Wed 23rd, at least 4 GGs close to the Musks.

Yesterday around noon I went to see if the Musk Lorikeets had were still at the tennis courts on Kent Street (they weren't, they haven't been seen since Tuesday).


Walking back across Alfred Deakin Hugh School Oval I heard growling from a Tasmanian Blue Gum on Denison Street and found three GGs (these two males and one female), having a siesta.
