Three friends and I will be spending 3 weeks birding in SE Australia prior to a 
short visit to New
Caledonia.  None of us have been to this part of Australia, although 3 of us 
have been to
Queensland.  We will have a car and have used Thomas & Thomas (and recent 
postings on
birding-aus) to work out a provisional itinary (we also have Bransbury?s book). 
 The trip splits
into 4 parts, but is flexible within each part (depending on what has been seen 
at the time!):
July 21-26:  Sydney-Canberra-Deniliquin
July 28-Aug 1:  Deniliquin-Melbourne-Portland
Aug 3-7:  Portland-Victoria Malle-Adelaide
Aug 8-14:  Adelaide-Birdsville-Adelaide (with 4WD)

We would be grateful for any further information, recent sightings or specific 
sites, comments or
advice on any part of the trip.  I will not have access to e-mail after 17 
July.  The places we
intend visiting (and, drawn heavily from Thomas & Thomas, the birds we might 
hope to see) in
the third part of the trip are:

Aug 3-7:  Portland-Victoria Malle-Adelaide
Wyperfield NP:  Mallefowl, Chestnut Quail-Thrush, Shy Hylacola, Southern Scrub 
Regent Parrot, Bluebonnet, White-browed & Masked Wood Swallow, White-fronted 
Red-capped Robin, Gilbert?s Whistler
Hattah-Kulkyne NP:  Striated Grasswren, Malle Emuwren, Chestnut Quail-Thrush, 
Hylacola, Southern Scrub Robin, Regent & Mulga Parrots, Purple-crowned Lorikeet,
Chestnut-crowned Babbler, Masked Wood Swallow, White-fronted Chat, Red-capped 
Gilbert?s Whistler, Black-tailed Native Hen
?Yarrarra NP:  White-browed Treecreeper, Crested Bellbird, Gilbert?s Whistler
Gluepot Reserve:  Scarlet-chested & Regent Parrots, Striated Grasswren, 
White-browed Treecreeper, Black-eared Miner, Red-lored Whistler

Any recent observations or specific locations within the sites would be most 

Many thanks in advance for any information,

Richard Fairbank
