I was in Tamworth recently and was some what suprised to hear three seperate 
Koel Cuckoo's calling around town. The records not that unusual as it is well 
within their range, however I was thinking at the time they may have not have 
been there in force during the last few dry years and they are probably 
drifting west as well with the wet weather.
