Thank you for the update, Martin.  Students of hydrographic folklore will know that in places such as Jerilderie they hold to the belief that Billabong Creek is the longest ‘CREEK’ in Australia/the Southern Hemisphere/the World.  In its unpretentious meanderings it rises to the east of the Hume Highway near Holbrook, and adds its flow to the Edward River near Moulamein.  Meanwhile, here in Canberra all the talk is of entomopathogenic nematodes.

Geoffrey will be pleased to hear that a White-backed Swallow was evident at the Wanganella Swamp/TSR last Monday.  The campground at Wanganella was very pleasant for us to try out our new tent once the fierce wind stopped trying to blow it into the Billabong Creek.  I have never seen as many Brown Treecreepers as at that site, and a flock of 50-100 White-browed Woodswallows were constantly overhead.


Heading towards Deniliquin we noted what looked like White-backed Swallow nest burrows at Box Creek (off the Cobb Hwy) and in the Deniliquin Pistol Club grounds at Pretty Pine.
