Hi All,


Did a quick trip to Birdsville last week, some good birds seen were:


Black-faced & White-breasted Woodswallows at Farina

Mallee Ringnecks at Farina

Mating Wedgies at Derwent River Station, great close-up photos of male after
copulation as he still had wobbly legs and was in no hurry to fly off.   The
female flew off straight after mating.

Black-fronted Dotterels at Mungerannie

3 Brolga, 1 immature 2 adults at Mungerannie

Great Egrets, Royal Spoonbills and 10 juvenile Nankeen Night Herons feeding
together on a falling muddy anabranch of the Diamantina River at Birdsville.
There were another 10 juvenile Nankeen Night Herons roosting in the lignums
at the edge of the river.  A fantastic sight.  Fairy Martins were flying to
and fro under the small bridge. 

Zebra finches and Budgies were also seen in Birdsville.

White-winged Fairy-wrens and Chirruping Wedgebill in Parachilna.
