Hi all,
As an aside to Budgerigars being seen in eastern parts of Australia. I'm in 
Wagga Wagga at the moment, and there are large numbers of Cockatiel around 
town. The birds are common at the CSU campus, and yesterday a large flock flew 
over the main street in town.

Hi Jenny,
You must have had a dry day in lovely was pouring down in
Sydney most of Saturday!
Just a quick comment on the Budgies, you saw.  In 2004 and perhaps earlier,
a small group were present on a private property near Glen Alice, and they
were seen to be breeding. I don't know if they are still there or are
connected to your group. Unfortunately the property became 'out of bounds' -
a great shame, as it had Regent Honeyeater and Plum-headed Finch on it.
Records may show that Budgerigars have been spotted elsewhere in Capertee
since then, especially before the drought broke.
