Late yesterday afternoon (around 5pm) from my balcony in Waverley (just outside Bondi Junction) saw huge flock of Yellow-taled Black Cockatoos flying in an approximaetly SE direction several km away in the vicinity of the southern parts of Centennial Park. 
I counted 178 birds, which is similar to total for flock passing over same area, similar direction, late afternoon Fri 21/5, 171 birds (sorry, forgot to post that on).
Also, surprised to see new addition to my "home" list - immature Golden Whistler in Swamp Mahogany just outside (3m away) my balcony.  No doubt not that surprising but a new one for me for the district.
For those who think that neighbour's birds don't count, I live in a flat  on the 6th floor, so my home list includes all birds seen from the balcony - since the view extends on a good day all the way to the Blue Mountains, this is admittedly biased in incuding large soaring birds, especially those flying over nearby Centennial Park. 
Thanks to those who replied re Sabah - I have yet to reply indivdually. Cheers.
