Hi all, 

Copied below is an email I sent previously, in response to Michael Woods' 
email. ...Bludgies seem to be doing the same thing up the other end of the 
continent too. 


Hi Michael, 

Budgerigars are certainly pretty common well beyond their "normal" range at 
present. There is quite a number of reports from coastal areas at Townsville at 
present, usually mobs of 10-20. I saw 10 near the uni where I work two weeks 
ago. I also saw a mob up in coastal NE Arnhemland late last year. 

I returned from a work trip up into the Einasleigh area (central east N. Qld) 
yesterday, and while this area is certainly a regular place to see budgies, I 
saw lots more than usual this trip. Also a lot more red kangaroos than normal, 
which usually means v. hard times to the south west of this area.

In my experience, this usually is, as you say, indicative of what's coming 
(nice looking falcons especially).
