I saw approx that number of corellas, with a few white cockatoos,
sitting on the wires as I drove down Narrabundah Lane near the TGA
building this morning at around 7am, so presumably the same ones.  I'm
getting some in my garden (wanniassa) every evening. I'm close to
Wanniassa Hills primary school, and the trees there seem to attract them
as they fly through to wherever they roost at night (Callum Brae?)

50 Corellas just flew over Vikings golf course here in Narrabundah
heading towards Kingston.  I haven't seen flocks of them around this
area since
last April.     There was a complete absence flying through for about 6
months and I didn't even see any in Callum Brae for several months
although they may have been around as my visits were sporadic.  In the
last month smaller numbers have flown past on what could be a Callum
Brae > Lake Burley Griffin or Callum Brae > Kingston route, usually 2 up
to 6.

Also in recent days there has also been a reappearance of flocks of
about 20 YT Black Cockatoos in the pines on the golf course in the
afternoons; first time for about 11 months too.
