All 12 birds together just flown over my back garden heading south towards Southlands High School. Very noisy too!

When I noticed 5 earlier in the week I noticed one was yellow. In the flock of 12 "some" had shorter tails but as they were high it was difficult to assess colouration. The colour and short tails being indicators of juveniles.
