Hello all and happy spring; I'm just back from a month's work trip to WA so am out of touch here. WA's a bit out of our bailiwick, but just a couple of obs for those who share my view that the Riverina (a favourite part of my world) is part of our extended back yard.

En route (16 August), 3 Magpie Geese landed on an irrigation channel east of Narrandera. This morning, east of Deniliquin, the squilteenth Wedgie of the trip was feeding with corvids on a carcase - except that when it flew off it was an immature Sea Eagle. Maybe this is not very interesting - I've not had time to look at at HANZAB yet - but I've not seen it before.

(And of probably even less interest on this line, a dead Red Kangaroo this morning between Urana and Wagga Wagga. Assuming it was a wild animal, it was by far the furthest east I've seen this species.)



(Apologies if this appears twice; I think I sent it the first time before I was properly back on the list.)
