Hi Hugo
I live about 3 km from the Darwin CBD, in the suburb of Parap.  

Hilary Thompson and I started the list when we moved here in 1984, and I 
seem to remember that by late 1990 we already had over 100 species.  It 
has grown slowly since to 140 species. 
Best birds are Red Goshawk (diving after Rainbow Lorikeets), Great-billed 
Heron, and Christmas Island Frigatebird (seen flying over accompanied by 
Lesser and Greater), plus sundry other species such as Rose-crowned 
Fruit-dove, Pheasant Coucal, Wandering Whistling-duck, Banded Land Rail 
which although not rare are uncommon in inner suburbs.

I use the same criteria to record birds as you.
