Monitoring from the Kestrel Creek

Kestrel Creek is in the Melbourne eastern suburb of Templestowe, and bisects the large bushland/recreational Westerfolds Park.
I was in the Park on July 14 2014 for some hiking and as the Eton E5 was on the front seat, I hooked it up to a 3 m random antenna near the Manna Gums car park. In the mid-afternoon I was pleasantly surprised at the high level of spectrum occupancy from all continents, on all bands above 5 MHz!
These are some selected entries which may be of interest, in the window 0500 to 0530, (1500-1530 local time here). Activity prior to 0500 is also indicated:
