Author's notes

Spotted a male and female feeding in a Allocasurina, they flew off in the direction of the dam. We walked headed down the road towards the mill and then saw a single glossy fly over calling and then heard several glossies calling from various directions it sounded like they were all heading for the dam. We think we heard about 7 different glossies all up.
