Sometime earlier this year, some of the subscribers to Birding-Aus expressed
their surprise at how dry Southeast Queensland was after listening to media
reports that the big dry was over.

Well it has happened again.  Despite all the reports to the contrary, the
drought is still on in most of the inland areas of SE Qld.  The Darling
Downs and many of the nearby areas are still in the grip of one of the
driest years ever recorded.

In other times, such a drought has seen huge increases of western birds into
the Darling Downs and even coastal areas.  Whether this will happen when the
droughted area is surrounded by wet areas remains to be seen.
