Richard Fuller from the University of Queensland(
http://www.fullerlab.org/ ) is organising some outback bird surveys
(focussed in the South Australian outback, but also bits of NT and
potentially WA). He is hoping to keep these surveys running for as long
a period as possible while Australia dries out from the recent rain
event, but initially he is looking to put together three groups of two
to do some surveys for two weeks between mid October, and mid November.
We need at least two more people, and possibly a third.
He is looking for some highly experienced folk with excellent birding
skills and outback travel experience who might be able to volunteer. All
expenses are covered including $0.60 per kilometre for up to 3000 - 4000
kilometres for anyone who is able to use their own vehicle. We will hire
vehicles as required.
Essentially each team will be travelling along one of South Australia's
major outback roads, conducting line transect counts at designated
areas, but we expect there to be some time available to do opportunistic
counts. We expect each team will be doing surveys for 10-12 days, and
most of that time will be spent driving or doing standardised counts,
and people will be camping opportunistically along the way.
Please let me know if you are available, or if you are interested in
I'll send you a bit a paper work which we need filled out and further
details on where exactly the surveys will take place, the kinds of
transects, etc. for those who are interested.
Cheers - Rob
