Hi Neville,
It is good to hear that the floodwaters are moving down the Lachlan and
that lake Brewster, the Booligal wetlands and Willandra Billabong(?)
will be flooded this spring. I know where your birds are coming from
that are flocking to the Lachlan wetlands, they are coming from Tuggerah
Lakes!! This weekend I found virtually no waterbirds, there are usually
2-3000 Swans, 2000+ Grey teal, 1500 Chestnut Teal etc  on the Lake in
winter but alas all seem to have gone, and there were no birds on the
Tuggerah STW usually a good place to find Shovellers, Hardheads and even
Pinkears in winter! I hope to go out that way in September.
