Cockatiels drinking at Redbank Waterhole on Owen Springs Station

I went with Dad down to Owen Springs Station. We had to get up really early and left home before 5 o'clock n the morning. We got to Redbank Waterhole just before the sunrise. We were hoping to see lots of budgies come to drink. Dad took a photo of me when I was trying to take videos of Zebra Finches:

The budgies were everywhere I reckon about 5000, dad thought more like 2-3000, but they wouldn't come down to drink. We moved up the waterhole a bit and the Cockatiels did come down to drink. Here are two videos I took:
