Jenny Bounds and myself were returning to Canberra from the Bignet Meeting
at Leeton on Sunday afternoon (13 September).

We observed two Major Mitchell cockatoos feeding on the ground with a small
mob of Galahs beside  the main highway just as it enters Ardlethan from the
west.  They were feeding on some wheatlike grass about 20 metres off the road.  

This appears to be a fairly easterly sighting.  We will be submitting an
Atlas record for this.  

Quite made our day.
