Part 1: The catching process.
The bird was noted high up in a tree, flew down into low shrubby growth, perched for a few seconds then flew up and got hold of a large caterpillar. After much flapping and tugging, freed the caterpillar for the shrub and flew off with it's catch.

A 2.4m long Green Mamba caught this Village Weaver then dropped the prey onto the ground below. Within 30 seconds it went down onto the ground and positioned itself to ingest the bird and once the bird was partially swallowed it pulled itself back into the undergrowth and later was seen in the tree with a lump in its body. There is a resident pair of these snakes in my garden that I see regularly. I have posted this same snake earlier this year with a Grey-headed Sparrow. Has a yellow scale above its right eye. It hunts over my bird table in the garden.

I went down to my swimming spot with the aim ofremoving some branches from a tree which had fallen across the river. As I arrived I disturbed a young Fish Eagle who was sitting on this tree. Rustling in the undergrowth on the opposite bank alerted Dog and me that we were not alone and soon an otter popped up its head, sending the dog into a fit (she probably thought it was a swimming honey badger). Another otter also started popping up and down and doing a sort of long moan-growl. To my surprise the closer otter started making a bee-line for us and was probably only 3m away from the dog when I called her back. After a while they settled down so I entered the water to commence my pruning task, keeping a close eye on the nearest otter. Dog was sensibly sticking to the bank. After a few minutes I noticed the otter had moved closer, was staring at me intently and again moan-growling. Being waist-deep in water with nothing for protection but a swimming costume and a folding saw, I decided to calmly retreat and the otter immediately snaked over and claimed the territory I had just vacated.

Failure to launch ...

On 11 Feb 2020 I was inspecting a small clump of Virgilia for pupae (larvae previously recorded, https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/33054859).

At the original site the tunnels had been colonised by Anoplolepis ants and no pupae were found. Empty tunnels and ants were noted at several other trees. When I found a single pupa I worried that it might also fall prey to the ants and removed it.

The pupa was very vigorous and appeared to be developing well - I last took pics of it on 9 March. Shortly after that no more movement was noted.

I manually exposed the moth for photographs.
