We’ve had about 5-6 on the farm all winter. Unsure if numbers have picked up now the flowering Cherry’s are all out though. Will have to ask Dad

Thought I heard one out the back of Kereru Road the other day but it could have been a cockatoo... Also I have seen them a few times near the Hakarimatas.

A flock of eight(!) kaka just flew over the house a few minutes ago, heading north to south. Heard at least one calling on a neighbouring property a few days ago as well.
