This morning at Jerrabomberra NSW, continuous flocks.  Several streams must coalesce  to follow a tree line, and then funnel down to pass over Lindsay’s house on a narrow front.  They did not start until 0930 and were still going at 1130.  I estimate more than 12,000 in the 2 hours.  Early small flocks were nearly all White-naped, then about 25% of larger flocks.  I counted 125 birds in the below photo, part of one flock.  Imagine one of these passing over about every minute or so.
