At 15:30 hours yesterday, May 7, I was in the back yard when a sudden gusty breeze sprang up from the South West and concurrently about eight or 10 Superb parrots whizzed overhead just above rooftop level. Right behind them came some 20 Common Starlings. Both groups swooped wildly from side to side as they went. Thinking a raptor may have been the catalyst, I scanned the sky for several minutes but saw no predators.
