I noted a small breeding colony area (birds going into tunnels) in a spot a bit south of Tharwa, on one of the COG blitz days a few years ago. This was not Angle Crossing although they probably breed there too. Martin provided some good GBS data. I'd suggest though that most GBS data is simply of the birds flying high over. For example I have recorded Rainbow Bee-eaters on my GBS on many, if not most of the last 23 years. However these are always of the birds flying high over, and many of these have been of the birds being so high that there are heard only, observations.
