Tonight, between 8:30pm and 8:45pm, there were mass calls of Corellas in a flock.  They were not evident on the skyline but clearly milling about in the vicinity of Telopia Park, leading to a presumption that they are roosting in the park now, instead of returning to Callum Brae as the normal direction of their flights suggest.

Interesting.  I heard a flock of corellas in the Yarralumla/Deakin area two nights
last week at approx. 10:30pm and 12:30am respectively.  I assumed that they
had been disturbed from their roost, but I'm not aware of any within earshot
(and I doubt they would sneak in quietly!)
