I asked Vaughan what he had been doing with it and he claimed innocence, which was soon verified by the many peck-marks at the bottom on the container! I'm sorry I missed seeing the bird(s) that carried it off! Our money is on the White-winged Choughs, related to the Apostle Birds but definitely the boss-gang of all our bird visitors.
We were visited by various birds during our stay. As well as the spread, they raided our bread - and anything left unattended! The usual "suspects" were Apostle Birds, Currawongs and the White-winged Choughs but Kookaburras kept an eye on us too, though preferred their bread and spread together - preferably with cold meat in between!
