On May 14 David Milburn suggested this bird may be a Yellow-crested Cockatoo (C. sulphurea).  It is presently hanging out in Lyneham doing the usual excavation of onion weed bulbs.  Does this close-up help with ID?  The photo has not been enhanced in anyway.  Notice the colour wash on the cheeks also.

Perhaps a simpler explanations is that its name is Julia.
