The Bush Stone-curlew family had moved to a more secluded area of the campus overnight (about 50m or so from the hatching site). I discovered them after about 15 mins searching. Today the chicks were up and walking around, at least for a little while, before settling back down for a nap.

I am fairly certin of this species as they have previously been identified by Ken Walker and I have been watching roosting since early 2019 The last day I have sighted this species roosting in this location. First seen on 15 January 2019. About 50 of these males were clustered on dead twigs over the pathway at about 6:45 am. When first seen all had their wings extended making a plant lik pattern. Unfortunately I breathed on them as I got close enough for a photo and they began to move, fly off or just close their wings. This is the first time I have seen a cluster of any wasp mimic bees. ID by Dr. Ken Walker and again in singles to threes since 22 Dec 2019 on cool mornings,up to 3 Jan202 (so far)

Male Dune Glider, Tramea eurybia.

Around the lake (photo 3) they are continually active, not stopping or perching lakeside. However they can be seen flying and perching about 10 m above the ground up to 300 metres away from water.

Photo 4 is of a mating pair. My camera and I weren't able to keep up. However, it gives an indication of male and female colours.
