Mon 30 Apr Scarlet-chested Parrot (3 sightings in SA on 2 separate days) Anne Beadell Highway - Great Victoria Desert
Sighting one (SA) on 30/4 at 8:15am; a female perched on a dead branch facing me about 75 metres from our first camp. This was in Tallaringa Conservation Area, SA. (Lat/Long S 028° 57’ 58.28” E 133° 01’ 27.28”) Sighting two (SA) on 1/5 at 8:00am at our camp was of a male and female on a low dune crest/swale. I admit here I used playback but no other time. I took a few photos that are ok. Good views for a few minutes then they flew off and the female landed on a dead branch nearby (Lat/Long S 028° 33° 11.56” E 131° 53’ 1.29”). Sighting three (SA) was in the Woomera Prohibited area on 1/5 before 9:30 sometime? This was 3 Km west of Anne’s Corner; two males flew into a dead tree fairly close to track so we had good views for a few minutes. - Carla Jackett
