Internationally significant numbers of oriental plover and oriental pratincole 
at ephemeral inland wetlands of the Northern Territory, Australia, by 
Jaensch-R, in The Stilt : bulletin of the Australasian Wader Studies Group of 
the Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union.: Apr 1994, no 24: 12-13.

Large portions of the populations of oriental plover, Charadrius veredus, and 
oriental pratincole, Glareola maldivarum in the East Asian-Australasian flyway 
occur in northern Australia during the non-breeding period. During 1993 an 
inventory of wetlands of the sub-humid tropics of the Northern Territory was 
conducted to obtain information on waterbirds, especially use of the wetlands 
by migrant shorebirds. The surveys confirmed that lakes Woods, Sylvester and De 
Burgh in the Territory are of international importance for shorebirds, 
particularly oriental plover and/or oriental pratincole. These ephemeral lakes 
are key components of a network of wetlands across inland northern Australia 
used by shorebirds. (Au)
