Hi Peter, All,
        My brief contribution is that, at home, I had been watching Magpie-larks
feeding young in their nest high in a nearby Poplar tree. The young had got
to the squawking stage a few days before our 45.7 degree day. During, and
since that day - no activity! I think that would have been the story for any
nestlings in exposed positions on that day, over a large area of
south-eastern Australia.
