Thank you for your comment, if you keep persisting you get lucky, gear pushed to its limit. If you sat still this bird was not too bad, moment you moved however it did not want to be about, I think from this and other experiences they are very sensitive to foot fall.
Re the other thing I agree with you. I suspect this is not a bird that thrives in suburbia, with the attendant disturbance, encroachment, joggers, dog walkers, loose dogs etc etc. not to mention moggies, which in that location would have about in number for more than 50 years by now. Suspect it all got too much for them there for many reasons, aided possibly by something random happening, like the area was back-burned or had a fire which cleared the leaf litter they love and the birds had nowhere suitable to go to and come back from etc. etc......
