Hey all,
CSIRO email address apparently still not coming through to COG-L.  Anyways, I had a dark-phase WBCS this morning flying over the carpark at work here in Crace (corner of Gungahlin Dr & Barton Hwy). 

Also for the first time we've had Superb parrots flying almost daily through our neighbourhood in Kaleen.  I saw one female in Kaleen last year, but this year groups of 20 or so are seen and heard.

Regent H/E was still there on Monday evening.  I was surprised that no one was there looking for the nightjar, which I didn't flush but wasn't specifically looking for.  I was rather after the Painted B/Q which appear to have moved on, leaving many a platelet behind.
