Author's notes

A huge flock (over 1000) of Little Corellas were foraging in the adjacent paddock south of Jerrabomberra Grasslands southern end entrance. Then they flew off towards north, calling loudly. They flew passed over us for a few minutes. Estimated 1500+ (by Ryu from video). Took photos and video which can only show a part of the flock.

Hi Chris
I have uploaded Yumi's video on Google Drive. I reduced resolution so that I could upload it. It does not show the whole flock as they flew spreading widely over us.
