I'll be watching out for clamping and grasping by passerines (also
well-known behaviours of traffic wardens in London).

On a related topic am I correct in thinking that Noisy Miners are one of
the few species which both "walk" and "hop".  Typically they walk around
on grass looking for prey and then take a couple of hops to pounce on an
insect.  Their preference for walking would help explain why they do not
like habitats with understorey.
