Hello all... Lorne here...

I'm back from Cowra. Saw a SUPERB PARROT some 3km out of Cowra on the
road to Wyangala Dam. It flew over some flood-plains/paddocks... direct
flight, sharp long tail, curved pointed wings. Quite a large bird
actually!  Another new bird for me!!! Didn't see much else birdwise. Did
call for Barking Owls at a property near Wyanagala Dam, but to no avail. 

According to a local out there the land about Cowra is the best he's
seen it his whole life! He's 50 odd. Indeed the land is luxuriant and
incredibly emerald!!! Patterson's Curse is everywhere, giving this
purple punch to the landscape too!!! Beautiful countryside -
quintessential Australia really!

Get out there if you can. 

Cheers and eventful birding,
