At least 110 of them, in some places blackening the wires like starlings do, with over 75 of them in my GBS site in Chapman this afternoon.  This is the biggest flock I’ve seen locally, though I’ve seen up to 85 at a feeding site in Rivett a few hundred metres away.
There was one less than there might have been as a couple of hours earlier my neighbour has invited me in to watch an adult female Collared Sparrowhawk eating one through his picture window!
