Hi Delta - Yeah if it was coming from the North around that time - I saw it too - was on duty with VFAS at an Event, and spotted it from the Craigie area.

I was walking down Cambridge street at the time, but would have taken me camera out and taken a couple of happy snaps,

but....

DAMN WILLY WAGTAIL [little bird] kept on dive-bombing me cause he had a nest in the tree I was taking cover in.....

GRRRRRR, Bring's back the memories of service with the black - hawks i.e. only recently

Lucky it was a Willy Wagtail and Not a Magpie - They are very aggressive this year - We've had 3 incidents at curtin so far last week with people req minor First aid after being swooped by Magpies.

not saying any one lied, asked you is it all yellow with red nose and loud, i and my wife went outside after hearing it above all the radio's and closed windows and watched in the 39.5 deg heat for 2 mins ????? heading NW ??, Channel seven has red on it but this was far too noisy for 7's chopper, just quoted what we heard and saw,.
