Today at about 1030 Ian Fraser and I saw the 2 budgerigars at Yarramundi Reach. The budgerigars were seen down the southern end of the grassland flying into a poplar tree. This successful outing followed two unsuccessful searches yesterday, including 90 minutes in the rain, conducting what I imagined to be English style bird watching.

It took two hours to find them this morning and despite me looking hopefully at each flock of over flying red-rumped parrots, we had reasonable views of them flying into a leafless tree. We did not see any further movement as we closed the birds, but frustratingly we were unable to find them for a close up view. At least we were able to confirm that they hung around after the rain and we left David McDonald with the task of trying to relocate the birds.
