Mary’s observations are interesting and very relevant, as the current loss of 
trees along the border of Centennial Park and along Anzac Parade due to the 
progress of the Light Rail are of great concern.

The Corellas both Little and Long-billed continue to be present and mobile, 
heading out to Maroubra last weekend perhaps. Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos 
have returned in groups of 30+ recently, they fly into the Park in the morning 
and head south in the evening to roost in local parks. A pair of Tawny 
Frogmouths have remained in their roost tree despite the light rail 
construction being quite close. There has also been a number of less usual 
visitors to the Parklands and local areas such as the Randwick Environment Park 
as the smaller birds move around setting up new territories.
Time will tell as to the effect of the loss of habitat on the urban birds in 
Sydney’s east and in Centennial Park specifically. With constant monitoring 
through Birding NSW surveys, which are available for study on their website, 
the situation is being well and passionately monitored.
