large numbers near East West Rd/Brindabella Rd intersection
At the intersection I did a rough count for 15 mins - 200 birds, so 800 estimate for the hour I was there.  
I then walked 2km along Bullock Paddock Rd (then 2km back) not far away, and extrapolated from a 5 minute count (45 birds) at the start - so 1000 birds for the nearly 2 hours. (Probably 999 birds, given that a Hobby seemed to have one in its talons when it returned to its perch on a dead tree).  Highlight of the walk was finding three Red-capped Robins, including a youngster still with yellow gape. Photos of all three in ebird list, which should be visible shortly
