We have had 272 mls in the last 24 hrs here at Kingfisher Park and Bushy Creek 
is now a "river".  The orchard is under at least 120 mms of water.

One group of nestlings is still in their mound but I think it will only be a 
few days until they fledge as its now 31 days since the chicks started calling. 
 The average period to fledging is 28 days (in a article by Sarah Legge) but 
the last group to fledge were 35 days in the nest.  This is a week longer than 
the study indicated.
