Hi all,
        just a quick email regarding the sighting a colleague and l made 
yesterday heading back from South Gippsland, Victoria.  We were amazed to see a 
huge flock of Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos (approximately 150-180 birds) 
flying over the bare hills at Loch, approximately 16 kilometres north west of 
Korumburra, Victoria.   I was unsure whether this is a common occurrence (large 
flocks) in this part of the world, or in fact the birds were on the move, 
heading towards the rangers.  I must admit it was the largest flock of YTBC's l 
have see, and certainly an impressive sight.

Any thoughts comments would be useful.
