The timing of the surveys would have been fairly critical: for years there has been a substantial roost for cockatoos and corellas. IMHO, these have been consistent rather than 'occasional'. Obviously, the birds are absent during the day, except when feeding, but gather in large numbers during the evening and evident again in the morning as they set off for the day's activities.  There used to be a person in upper O'Connor who fed very large flocks of these birds and we would get them flying over our place from ANU roosts in the early hours of the morning. I am not sure that that still happens now.

The comparison with COG GBS data is worth a comment.   The period for the comparison is presumably 2002-2012.  I am surprised the PB Duck and Wood Duck respectively have the 3rd and 4th greatest GBS increase for that period.   I am surprised the myna has the 5th greatest increase given a reported decline in more recent years [?]
