More of the same

Another visit to Cobbler Creek, this time with the deliberate aim of going back to the same nesting hollow as previously. I wanted to use the 500 PF without the TC, which meant getting closer. To offset the closer proximity, I tried for the first time to create a temporary hide using a camouflage net.

The results were mixed. Some birds like the Musk Lorikeets completely ignored my presence, but the Red Rumped Parrots were continuously looking in my direction and being very edgy. So not quite as good as I had hoped.

Musk Lorrikeet. The Red Rumped Parrots were very raucous trying to shoo this pair away from the nesting hollow.

More experimentation next week.
