Thanks Mathew - I wonder whether they may start breeding in southern Canberra - given what seems to be an increasing number of sightings of Superb parrots in the Tuggeranong area.

Small numbers do seem to have overwintered in Canberra this year. Southside sightings of small groups seem to be becoming regular - but I'm still yet to see any in Fadden although it has been reported either side and even in Fadden now.
