They were flying around amongst the trees along the cycle path down from the Golf Course towards Hughes Preschool on Kent Street. There were both males and female type birds, but, I fancy rather more female type birds which would suggest there are juveniles amongst them and therefore that the SPs have bred on Red Hill or somewhere nearabouts this year. (I can't be certain, they were flying very fast and I was running (very slowly)).
When we first moved to Hughes in 1995 the nearest SPs were probably at Murumbateman. I know that the recolonisation of north Canberra in the 1990s and 2000s is them moving back into their previous range, but were they ever known from south of the Molonglo before?
