2416478027/8/20160found nests that were obviously abandoned and falling apart, but others looked active. There were no birds in the vicinity (in fact very few birds of any kind were seen as the wind was howling), but possibly there have been other sightings as I see on SABAP2 that someone has recorded them in that pentad (possibly Alan Collett?). This site is virtually in a straight line to the Wellwood site we reported, some 16km apart, as the crow flies. See also fb
