No sign of juveniles, but regular occupation by both male Xavier and female Diamond, with considerable courtship behaviour. One prey was brought into the box by Diamond, but I couldn’t identify it, just a small grey bundle. There were a couple of flypasts, which I hoped might turn out to be juveniles, but I think it was a male, probably Xavier.
The courtship behaviour varies considerably. In the one shown below (18/2) the birds couldn’t be further away from each other, both bent low and circling, almost dancing.
At other times, they just stand and stare at each other, sometime for several minutes.
Diamond has been using the box during the day quite a lot (but less so at night). Here she was making some desultory effort at scrape preparation, but was clearly a bit bored with the whole affair.
Sorry, video was too big.
We do have a drop box so that I can send videos to Scott and he can turn them into youtubes, but it needs cleaning out! Next job on the list.
Off to Sydney today, so have a great weekend everyone.
