Author's notes

Same location as reported by JackyF at https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sightings/Details/4198061, original sighting by Ryu. I think I saw, at minimum 20-30 parrots that morning. The parrots were in a number of trees. They flew off mainly to the south-east towards Garran although I also heard a group more towards Red Hill.
