on my regular quick trip down to Leeton over the weekend I dropped in briefly at the Ingalba reserve near Temora (which I know some other COG members visit occasionally).  Spent only about 20 mins there, and apart from lots of dusky woodswallows and some families of variegated fairy wrens, highlight was a couple of chestnut-rumped heathwrens in full voice, and got some good looks at them from only a couple of metres.  In leeton at fivebough there were dozens of black-winged stilts, red-necked avocets, black-fronted dotterels, and the reed warblers were very active -  and saw only a single spotless crake.  Sunday near Narrandera airport a flock of around 100 cockatiels .
