Jenny just to add.

I've seen a dozen or so during the day after showers around the large puddles 
that you will likely see given the forecast rain this week and intermittent 
showers on the weekend when you are there.....and also suspect there won't be 
many people there which is a good thing for sightings.

Sunny periods in between showers is the best time to see them in my view.

I've also flushed a Ground Parrot from the service track during the middle of 
the day (after about 15 previous attempts mind you).
