This story and pictures are compliments of Mike and June, guests in mid August of 2009. They are returning for a second visit in September of 2010.
The bird in the first picture was on the back of the mum and annoying her, each time she made it move, it just flew straight back, pecking at her.

Eventually it flew off with the cub watching it closely

It landed on a rock close by and the cub thought it would take revenge for mum, but each time it tried to get up on the rock it slipped down again. The bird totally ignored the cub, knowing full well that it could not be reached.
