About 26 YTBC passed north over Hughes today at around 4pm. They were in three waves a couple of minutes part of 14, 6 and 6 birds. The first waves was accompanied by a flock of about 10 Gang-gangs, which seemed to be flying with the YTBCs.

They were flying north parallel to Yarra Glen Drive. I don't know where they came from but I suspect they would heading for the pines around Government House and the golfcourse to feed and/or roost.
