A COG member is aware of this breeding event (I'll check with her to see if she puts records into COG or somewhere else) and knows the fledging date pretty accurately. And as she's a photographer it may well be her photos that are referred to.  I am a less frequent visitor, but see the WTEs there every visit and on occasion have recorded 4 birds.The birds are often visible from Kambah Hill Rd, sitting in dead trees at top of the hill

Forwarded message re wedgies breeding last season on McQuoid Hill.  Forgive
me if this has already been noted or discussed; I haven't heard of this pair
before.  If anyone is interested in following up I suggest contacting Ian
directly.  I didn't include the photos, at his request.

I was speaking to a Parks and Conservation ranger today who suggested I
contact your organisation in case no one else had advised you about a wedge
tail eagle pair who bred prior to Christmas on McQuoid Hill in Kambah.

I first discovered the nest in late September and saw the single chick in
mid October. The chick left the nest in early to mid December. A fellow
resident in Gleneagles Estate who has a good camera took the photos below.
(I have not asked her permission to use the photos so if you do want them
for my public purpose please let me know so I can put you in touch with

The adult pair continue to use McQuoid Hill and surrounding areas. The nest
is still there but is not as in good repair as when the chick was occupying

Apologies for the email but the reporting form did not really allow me to
provide the above information. I am happy to provide further details if
required. I can be contacted on 0400402014.

Hope the information is useful.
