A flock of eight Rainbow Lorikeets screeching past in Hughes this morning. 

No Gang-Gangs in Hughes since the 24 March (when the rain started). I had seen or heard them almost daily since the beginning of the year till then. 

When people have entered all their Gang-Gang data at the COG/ALA site it will be interesting to see if all GG records in the ACT ceased in this wet weather. If they did it could either be because:

1. GGs leave Canberra in wet weather
2. Observers don't get out and GGs are less vocal/obvious in wet weather.

Or a combination of 1 and 2.
