An afternoon with Pink D and Z

I followed Pink D and Pink Z this afternoon. They seem to be best buddies. We initially tracked them down to a backyard in Applecross where they were resting and trying to stay cool. They had found some dense shade by a swimming pool. Not a bad spot. I'd would have liked a dip in the  pool at the time as it was quite hot.

They flew off and we next found them feasting in a liquid amber tree. They continued to eat for over an hour before flying away to roost.

The tracking devices from the other birds indicated that two spent quite a bit of time near Hyde Park before roosting around Hollywood Hospital. The remaining pink tail is in the vicinity of Trigg.
