I'm surprised you didn't let the fine folks on the bash in on all these though? I imagine there will be a few furrowed brows when they all read this - expect some flak. Letting them know after they've left doesn't make you any friends, I'm surprised you haven't picked up on that.
Thing is, it was unusually quiet on Saturday - so no supression was involved! It often is when other people turn up. I think that good field craft skills are necessary to see a lot of the more impressive species and that's always harder to do in a big group of people.
