M. Koels around from early on. Koel fledgling pipping very insistently on back fence around 7:00. Wattle birds feeding frequently. I could hear another similar pipping further away in a neighbouring yard. At 9:00 the fledgling here flew up to the wire directly above the Sour Cherry and almost immediately a Magpie Lark flew down next to it. The fledgling put its "hackles" up & mouthed aggressively & the pee-wee flew off.  A wattle bird called out at this point and the fledgling flew further away following it to the wire above the fence in the lower garden.
Another larger bird (adult or fledgling Koel ?) followed this drama down to the ACTEW pole in the corner and sat silent for quite some time while the pipping of the fledgling from here continued till it eventually returned to its place near the cherry. The other bird stayed still for some time longer then flew off.
