Hi to all.

My two bob's worth on this one.

I have seen adjacent nests of these species on a couple of occasions and 
occupation of the same vicinity many times.  I have never seen a GB 
harassing a SH but have usualy thought that the SH tended to follow the 
GB rather than the reverse. I have wondered why without thinking of a 
plausible reason.
