Observation details

At least 3 birds calling 10:15-10:20 from the bush on the Manchester side of the road (-27.489887,152.743645). Chased around for a few minutes but failed to spot any. No RCBQ heard or seen. ID is based on the close match of the calls heard with those known for RBBQ (both from my personal experience and from calls on ML & Morecombe app). The birds were not responsive to RCBQ playback (the species with the most similar calls), but were somewhat responsive to their own calls. The count is based on hearing two birds simultaneously close to each other (overlapping calls, unfortunately not in the recording) and a third bird heard calling right after, 10m to the right (this is the bird calling in the recording). Further calls were heard, but the birds seemed to be moving around so I cannot be certain there were any more than 3, although I would not be at all surprised if there were half a dozen birds around.
