COG member Brian Chauncy messaged me that a reliable friend of his saw 2 flocks of about 50 Superb Parrots yesterday morning about 6 am feeding in the gums and on the ground at the corner of Launceston and Devonport Streets Lyons near the flats.  
My daughters found 16 still there around 5 pm, so they may still be there today if anyone wants to see them.
While they are certainly S of the lake these days (though still not in my local patch) 50 together is a large number anywhere in the ACT, particularly when they should be breaking up to start breeding.
