Hazel, interesting. 
For the 5-7 years or so before fires they were regular around my area in small numbers in the neighbouring (sort of) suburb of Chapman but no records at all since.  Historically they have been associated with flowering Grevillia juniperina along the Murrumbidgee, not that far away from us. 
For those of you who missed my anecdote at Wednesday night's meeting about 1990 a work colleague had one with a band fly into a window in Watson.  On returning the band to the Banding office, Kim Lowe, in charge at the time, said it had been banded in the Botanic Gardens, and at the time was the largest movement for this species.  Clearly not a long distance migrant, but certainly some local movement which seems to be happening now.
