As I hadn't seen the resident Tawny Frogmouths since 8 November I wondered if the annoying behaviour of the Pied Currawongs which nest in the same tree as the Froggies had driven them away.  They normally hang around for a few weeks with the chicks while they develop their life skills and then disappear for 3-4 weeks, during which the chicks head off to find their own patch.  However the adults have turned up again this morning, to my great pleasure.

It may or may not be a coincidence but the rain of the past two days has finally generated some run-off, replenishing the dams and generating some flow in Whiskers Creek for the first time since 23 November.  Certainly the frogs were raucous at 0600 this morning.
