I think I have put in (I am certain I meant to put in) a report of the flock being about that size for a day in early Winter last year so it should appear in the next ABR.  The ones I counted  were all lurking alongside the road in, so there may well have been more inside the tip itself.

A brief lunchtime stroll through an isolated woodland remnant less than 1 km from my work in Parkes produced Rufous Whistler, Grey Currawongs and an immature Grey Butcherbird. It was nice listening to its song with Parliament House so close in view. No Speckled Warblers this time, but I have seen them here in the past.

On another subject, I stopped to count the White Ibis colony at the Mugga Tip last week. I counted about 500 birds. Is this unusual? Or does this happen every year? I dont see any mention of this huge flock size in the ABR or on this discussion list. Is there a chance they may breed there?
