Hi Frank

I was curious about your Koel sightings in Broome.
I would not call them common at all.
In fact despite living there for the past 15 years ive never seen 1
Chris Hassell has been living there for a few more years than me and he also 
has not seen one.
I think George Swann has a couple of very old records including 1 at his house 
about 10 years ago from memory.
They are Common in the Kimberly and even breed occasionally in Derby
The only records I know about recently in Broome is a bird at the BBO bird 
baths approx 4 years ago and presumably the same birds seen 3 days later on the 
crab creek road.

Cheers Adrian
