Hi Martin,

You might find the following reference useful:

Davies, S.J.J.F (1972). Results of 40 hours' continuous watch at five water
points in an Australian desert. Emu 72: 8-12.

Stephen Davies has also published a number of papers on the impacts of farm
dams on Emu populations in arid parts of Western Australia.  Reference to
those papers are in HANZAB (Vol 1) and Stephen's book:

Davies, S.J.J.F (2006).  Ratites and Tinamous (Oxford UP, New York).

Kind regards,

Stephen Ambrose
Ryde, NSW

A request for members.

I am trying to compile information on the impact of man-made watering points
on birds and keen to hear or be advised on any relevant references etc with
respect to dry country birds in particular.

I am aware that dams were fenced or removed at Gluepot in South Australia
and understand a similar process has been undertaken at the Trust for Nature
property at Neds Corner in Victoria.  The rationale and outcomes of this
work is of interest.

cheers, Martin O'Brien
