I drove Hindmarsh Drive towards Fyshwick at about 4 p.m. today. Probably part of same flock of at least a few hundred in the similar area.

The Corellas just flew over me and Capital Golf Course, heading north in the half dark at 5:15pm, I assume to roost.  I counted 850 ±100.  I don’t know if anyone is still following their roosting but the trajectory and time suggest Jerra Wetlands or Mt Ainslie/Majura.

While driving home from Fyshwick this afternoon i spotted a large flock on the property on the South Eastern corner of Hindmarsh Drive and Monaro Highway. The shot i will add is zoomed back to 100mm to get all the birds in frame but i also took several shots at 400mm to do a rough count. I estimate 800+ Little Corellas. Also there was at least three Long-billed Corella but there were no Sulphur-crested Cockatoos.
