Hi all
a great start to my birding year with a pair of Grey Goshawks circling over my 
house (nr Boomerang/Pentecost junction) approx 10:30am this morning (2 Jan). 
They were being mobbed in flight by approx 40 very loud Sulphur Crested 
Cockatoos that were circling above and slightly behind them. One Goshawk was 
performing an odd manoeuvre by closing its wings (or taking a very strong 
flap?) and trying to glide up into the pursuing cockies - presumably to put 
them off.
Happy New Year and good birds for 2009 to everybody and thanks to all who 
responded to questions etc last year.
Tom Wilson
