Two spots each about 1.5 km from my place at Carina Brisbane have flocks of thousands roost each night. Thousands is my estimate. definitely more than one thousand but possibly many more.

There appears to be a remarkable number of places where there are large roost of RLs. I wonder how many?

Is it possible that RLs are our most numerous bird?

Anyone interested in doing could post a location and I'll collate them in an attempt to catalogue the roosting spots of RLs. While numbers would be interesting any numbers suggested will be approximations and are likely to be = or - 50%

This may give us some idea of just how many there are.
