 A few weeks back we were at Brookfield Conservation Park on a field trip,
11 kms west of Blanchetown in Sth. Aust.. This is semi-arid Mallee country,(
 where the hairy-nosed wombats live ), and I observed groups of 20 or more
Mallee Ringnecks coming in at about 7am to drink the dew formed overnight
on the corrugated iron roof of our shelter.   Has any-one else seen them
drinking like this ? Four Mallee Ringnecks were also seen momentarially
drinking the dew formed on top of one of our tents. 
        It is still fairly dry there at the moment.
        - Two wombats were seen  as we drove out of the Park at 3:30 - 4:00 pm.
