This email is particularly for Bud & Margaret Widdowson and Giles Daubeney, but also for others who are interested, naturally being most readers.
Both Plains-wanderers and Inland Dotterels are being observed just north of Deniliquin on the Plains country.
In December I completed the Spring/Summer edition of the Plains-wanderer monitoring. This is carried out over a number of properties from Jerilderie in the east to Wanganella in the west, just north of Conargo in the south and Hay in the north, 10 sites in all. Whilst numbers were down on other monitoring occasions, Plains-wanderers are being recorded breeding - even in the 'worst drought of the century', and Inland Dots have also been recorded breeding.
While it's is certainly not the best season, both species are being seen where suitable habitat is available to them. Inland Dots like it much barer than Wanderers so have a bit more country this year to choose from!
For people wishing to see Wanderers, Phil Maher can be contacted on either 03 5881 5278, or also through 03 9820 4223, mobile 0417 310 200. Inland Dots and Aussie Pratincoles are also potential sighting on Phils trips.
